Spent the morning romping around Stobswood. The above pics were all taken in Grangewood behind the old brickworks. I have promised myself this year to keep as local as possible driving and biking to Stobswood, Druridge and Harwood and on foot around Morpeth to see what I can find. I have also joined up to the garden moth scheme so with a trap on its way I'll be posting a few moths but I'll need a hand to identify most of them!
Typical winters morning, nice and fresh but quiet on the bird front with 500 or so Pink footed Geese, presumably the ones from Druridge, some nice Bullfinches and 9 Redwings with Blackbirds at the tip. Red Squirrels are still holding out at Stobswood with one in the old pit heap pine plantation and one in Grangewood.
