Another Great Week :)

A new species in the garden - as winter grinds on and the food gets scarcer - Long Tailed Tit - unfortunately it didn't hang around long enough for me to grab my camera :(

Today (Sunday March 5th 2006) we went to Rutland Water for a 5 mile walk, and then popped into one of the nature reserves in Egleton, adding a total of 7 new birds to our UK list (to add to yesterday's Common Buzzard):

Water Pipit
Goldcrest (the smallest bird in Europe!)
Common Gull
Lesser Black-backed Gull
Snipe and
Smew - I managed to get snaps of the ChiffChaff and the Goldcrest :)
