I've finally caught up with all the blogs I visit including the the ones on the sidebars of other blogs. I'm clutching at straws to post pics other than snow scenes. I'm not off work until the weekend so bird sightings are few and I'm hoping to get a bit further afield then. Yesterday a Tawny owl was flying from tree to tree at Monks ridge along the road here and I've had a few Fox sightings. The usual garden birds are rapidly depleting my stock of seed and today there were six Goosanders on the river at Oldgate. The river was frozen on Friday but now everything is looking dirty as the snow and ice melt so the Goosanders add a splash of colour to the dull Wansbeck.
