Sunday 8th March
Only time for a very brief visit to Ditton Quarry this afternoon. I quickly relocated the Redpoll flock and had excellent views, occasionally feeding on the ground below the alders in the south-west corner of the site. Amongst them was 3x Mealy Redpolls, very prominient by their larger size, frostier appearance and blush-pink breasts against the smaller, brown-tinged Lessers. Sorry no camera so no pics.
