14/1/2017 A nice sunny,frosty morning at Lynford Arboretum seeing Hawfinch, lots of Siskins, Marsh Tits etc.. Then on to Thetford where I saw juvenile Glaucous and Iceland Gulls. Welney for Bewick and Whooper Swans and a Barn Owl.
Bewick Swan & Welney
First stop was Brockworth near Gloucester where I saw the two Penduline Tits at the Horsbere Flood Alleviation Pool. Slimbridge WWT was the next stop where there were 1000’s of birds including Bewick Swans, White-fronted Geese, 100’s of Pintail, 2 Scaup and many other wintering wildfowl.
I went to Fen Drayton hoping to see the Serin’s that have been there recently but unfortunately did not see them. There was a Short-eared Owl there however which was nice to see. I also managed to photograph a Goldcrest. I then went to Welney and saw both Whooper and Bewick Swans.
