More local

An unexpected second and third bite of the cherry today. Firstly SLRS this morning with Steve and Bramble. The gloom meant no issues with looking into the sun, not that there was much to look for. New for the year were Cormorant, Mistle Thrush, Pheasant, and Stock Dove. Otherwise the usual stuff.

Then this pm with D#2 and D#4 to Hatfield Forest. More standard woodland stuff, then as we were leaving a Common Buzzard sat in a field, and a couple of fields down 24 Fallow Deer. Some were sat down on the edge of the field, something I've not seen before.

Unless we get some cold weather, I guess the thin lists of this weekend are typical of what we can expect locally until spring.
