West of Morpeth

Yesterday afternoon I filled the two hours 'nursery slot' with a drive out west of Morpeth. Not a huge amount to show for the effort, a few calling Crossbills in suitable breeding habitat, 3-4 Common Buzzards, Jay, Great Spotted Woodpecker and a confiding Red Squirrel.

Today a few glances in the garden and environs produced 2 Jays, 4 Siskins, several Bullfinches including a probable 'tooting' male 'Northern in the hedge, Lesser Redpoll, Tree Sparrow and a Grey Heron visiting neighbour's garden ponds looking for fish. Have some winter Hornbeam from yesterday.
