More snow and ice

A quick look down the beach at Caister Saturday afternoon produced 60/70 Snow Buntings waiting to be fed !
All the food had gone, the remains were being cleaned up by 4 Carrion Crows (2 very startling birds with 'zebra striped wings' ) and a Common Gull. As soon as the seed was put out they were on, about half being ringed.
Another look Sunday morning produced 45 birds eagerly feeding, it doesn't seem fair to catch them at the moment so we will let them feed up ready for a go over Christmas.

A frozen Rollesby Broad

A quick look down Rollesby and Ormesby Broads to see what the Coot numbers were produced about 100 on two small areas of open water, also packed in were 10+ Tufted Duck and 30+ Pochard and a superb 1st.Winter female Goosander.

Amazingly it got out of the water,preened for a while then walked across the ice  to the other stretch of open water.
