Are you saving up Moor Green for the weekend? A drake Pintail and a showy Little Owl on 1 Jan were nice there.

I was hoping to go to Moor Green today, but I thinkl I've missed my lift...

Well, Hawley Meadows gave:

47) Green woodpecker
48) Goldcrest
49) Little egret
50) Fieldfare
51) Chiffchaff
52) Treecreeper
53) Song thrush
54) Greenfinch
55) Yellow-browed warbler

That yellow-browed was a tough one, especially as it was flitting about with a chiffchaff and a goldcrest.
