Bit of a quiet week for me as I've been stuck doing extra hours at work but not in until my usual lunchtime today so took the opportunity to nip up onto Alnwick Moor in search of grouse and any raptors. Got two Red Grouse before I had even got out of the car and they obligingly stayed put until I got the scope onto them Other birds included a Buzzard on fence post, a pair of Kestrel and 10 Carrion Crow. Pretty quiet and a rather chilly 2c which had my hands and ears freezing after an hour...and a bit of a headache too which is very unusual for me. Perhaps it's time to start wearing a hat!!!!

Alnwick Moor

60: Red Grouse

Saturday, Jan. 17.

Was wavering back and forth, on whether I would bother going out on a run today; in the end, very glad I did! Just a couple of streets north of my house, a small but racous flock of crows drew my attention to a Cooper's Hawk they were pestering; and up at the end of my loop, in the Waterloo city park, a much larger, much louder flock was all over a Great Horned Owl! Not a species we normally see in town, and not one I would have expected to find at all, without a lot of effort.

10) Cooper's Hawk
11) White-breasted Nuthatch
12) Great Horned Owl
13) European Starling
14) Downy Woodpecker

Location: Kitchener and Waterloo - looped around Waterloo Park and then home.

Conditions: Not bad - a little chilly at -6º, but little wind. Snow packed on the sidewalks, but not enough to be icy yet.
