Patch update 17/01/09

I had a walk on patch this morning. I didn’t take the camera as it was so drizzly and gloomy when I set off, but the sun soon came out and I wish I had! Ah well.

Highlights were – 2 x drake teal at the Damflask “steps” at Stacey Bank (the first time I’ve seen two drakes together in the valley); 1 x dipper on the river by the Fisheries; 6 x siskin by Old Wheel Dam; 2 x jay, 3 x treecreeper and 1 x goldcrest, plus several long-tailed tits and one heron overhead, on the path opposite the house.

Dipper and goldcrest were year ticks.
