.... continue from yesterday

up to 4 little grebe have been on the canal generally north of newbridge, one today at Compton.
siskin and redpoll seem scarce this year I have not seen any redpoll and only one small flock of siskin at wildside on new years day. anybody out there had better luck.
Rooks were active at their rookery by racecourse on new yrs day with at least 10 birds hanging around the nests, though I suspect the cold snap will have pushed them away now. however in the bright sunshine this morning there was plenty of song with dunnock, robin, song thrush and great tit all in good voice. One of the last mentioned was giving a chiff chiff chiff song which reflects the variability of this species.
