    A 40 degree drop in temperature must be quite a shock to the system!

    It is - but have had some good records thus far through the window best being Redwings during the snow but its sooo nice to see finches, tits, Robin, Blackbird, Song Thrushes, Blackcap, Dummock, Wagtails and even Starling at zero feet let alone the Magpie, Crows, Jackdaws and Gulls. Even the pesky pigeons look good -

    Did you manage to get a photo of the Dummock Howard? - presumably a Dunnock with a low I.Q.

    Well, I suppose I ought to give an update seeing as I started this one. I still haven't been able to get and have a look around Mount Street rec. Today we ended up going to see the Boss's sister down Oxford way and that stopped it again. Tommorrow is GP and blood test day so I'm not even sure I can get to have look then. One day ... some day ... ... ... ...
