Pre England catch up

Just a quick catch-up before I head off for even more child minding in Bolton followed by a trip to Tyneside and the traditional dawn to dusk round Druridge, Chevington and Hauxley. I have been doing a bit of garden watching, had a walk along the coastal path and been to WOW, so progress is as follows. It being a waxwing winter I ticked them for 2020 in East Belfast, no photos as they were very flighty and as I was half way through a count in a rowan they took off and didn't come back. The coastal path added goldcrest, carrion crow and sparrowhawk to the local patch - all expected but nice to get them out of the way. Photos attached from the garden and the coast. I have also added in a couple of red squirrel shots from Castlewellan Forest Park. I stumbled on this little beauty near the castle while looking for jays, which I also got.

Patch tick for redwings - a record shot!
