More Mealy

Another trip up to East Chevington and again no Bearded Tit. The north pool held Black-throated Diver, Red-necked Grebe and 3 Long-tailed Duck flew in from the sea. A look in the north hide gave cracking views of a Mealy Redpoll, 12+ Lesser Redpoll, 2 Siskin and 2 Great Spotted Woodpecker while 2 Chiffchaff fed in the scrub.

Another look at the south end failed to provide the Bearded Tit, but a Marsh Harrier was hunting over the south pool.

I called in at Prestwick Carr, but too windy for the owl and the only bird of note at Shibdon was the Ruff.
