North Yorkshire 28-31 Dec 2010

A few days in a foggy and un-thawed Yorkshire provided a nice range of seasonal countryside birds.

In my parents' garden, Redwing, Blackbird, Goldfinch, House sparrow, Dunnock, Bullfinch (as many as 6 feeding on the ground at a time). A Yellowhammer out on Mowthorpe lane.

Around Sinnington, a field full of Partridge, Blue, Coal, Great and Long Tailed Tits, a Treecreeper in the woods up on the Scarp slope, Greenfinch. Floating majestically down the river, a male and 2 female Goosanders.
