Peace and quiet - exceptional for here

No planes
No helicopters
No cranes
No lorries
No waste plant
No cement plant
No builders merchants
No flat building
No diggers
No pile drivers
No noise!

An hours lunch in the snow (no fairweather patchbirder am I readers!) and I ended up with over a dozen Tufties, a couple of Gadwall, Coots, Moorhens and the usual regulars. Eventually I found a little flock of finches - there were a couple of Chaffinches and about half a dozen Linnets! A result methinks, first of the winter and obviously a year tick for the patch. All in driving snow, and sub zero wind chill. Proper bloody birding.

As I didnt get a picture of the Linnets, have one of a Coot in the snow.
