26/11 The “toad of work” back in place but barely a tadpole today. Still only a couple of hours to spare and what with the cold thought I’d go just up the road to Raywell to check the Woodland Trust reserve of Nut Wood and Wauldby Scrogs.


Waudby Sproggs and Nutwood

Started with a look for fungi but only some Candlesnuff.

As usual, and typical of woodland birding, it was initially hard work until I located the tit flock. As expected this was at the back of the wood which was still in sun. All the usual tits including at least 3 Marsh Tits and a Coal Tit as well as a photogenic Treecreeper and a few Goldcrest.

The 2 Snow Buntings were still just east of Paull river side car park this morning.
