A walk round Thacka
Had a walk round Thacka this morning , a beautiful warm sunny morning after a frosty and misty start.
Starting off along the hawthorns,there was Redpoll, Brambling, Blue & Great tits and Chaffinch. By the cottages a small flock of House sparrows (resident there) . On the flood 27 Lapwing stood on the ice, along with 3 Common Gulls, also 100 Lapwing flew over.There was a good smattering of Crows and Jackdaws about and a lone Buzzard circled over at one point. There was hundreds of Starling flying around and at least 20 to 30 Fieldfare.
