I had a brisk -6.5°C walk, before work this morning, where I had c100 Fieldfare, Redwing and Pied Wagtails, plus a Green Sandpiper.
A combination of the cold weather and the falling leaves has resulted in us seeing a few more birds in the garden recently. The highlight today was the very brief visit of two Great Spotted Woodpeckers.

There are now 2 Foxes roaming about Nythe, the healthy looking one put in a brief appearance and sadly there is another suffering badly from mange.
On the playing field there were 2 Herring Gulls, a Black-headed Gull, a Common Gull and a single Lesser Black-backed Gull over.
