Wednesday 19th November
A lovely crisp day, with a slight northerly breeze. Another short trip over Ditton Quarry this lunchtime. Things still quite after last weeks Hawfinches, Redpolls and Siskins - no of these were seen today. 15 Fieldfares fed on the grassy area in the SW corner and the GS Woodpecker put in another appearance. 8x Bullfinches were seen, and posed briefly (but not long enough) for a snapshot...at least this one's in focus! A dragonfly (Hawker spp?) was on the wing, but no butterflies today. On the walk back into work a male Pheasant strutted through the apple orchard.
