Saturday at least turned up 2 Common Gulls(60) and a Lesser Black-back Gull(61).
Today was a better day with Marsh Tit, Coal Tit and Water Rail of note down at the feeders.
The lakeside alders held a flock of Goldfinch and Siskin and a Buzzard was being chased by a pair of local Carrion Crows.
On the water seven Mandarins were present but the Great crested grebe had disappeared again.
Despite the rain continuing I decided to have yet another look in the orchard at Haymans Hill and my persistence in visiting it paid off, at last, when a Waxwing(62) was found amongst the many winter thrushes.Brilliant!!!
It got even better when a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker(63) called from the derelict orchard adjacent to Maidstone Road as I left for home.
It has also been great to find that a few Redwings are visiting the garden.
