Back to the only winters day so far

I have a rotten cough and cold at the moment.This along with the One Day International v South African followed by the Calcutta Cup meant it was a rather sedentary date, punctuated by a few leaps up in the air and loud cheers. A good day for England supporters. I did have the chance to have a look at a few photos I took on the 21st Jan when the Restharrow Scrape was mainly frozen over.

Restharrow Scrape

A slipping and a sliding Coot.

A couple of Dabchicks with the wind up their tails

Eigeon and Gadway graze on the nearest island.

Drake Shoveler looking good.

Some of the 300 or so Teal on the edge of the ice.

Drak Mallard looking rather smart.

A few Herring and Great-black Backed Gulls gathered at the back of the scrape.

Greylag Geese
