PHIL ROBBINS on Monday, 15 January 2018
Marsh Tit on feeders by cafe. Pretty sure it was a MT though someone had recently recorded a Willow Tit there. Thought I also saw one in the bushes near the wind pump, to the left of path.
Agree with all the other sightings noted for 15th Jan!

Numerous redpoll in the alders above the path by EMP - about 50/50 with siskins.

Numerous redwings in the trees between Hare Copse and the golf course, also saw a fox there.
Several bullfinches around.
3 x Goldeneye - 2 ♂, one ♀, one ♀ goosander, one ♂ pochard - on EMP.
Treecreepers near Hare Copse.
1x reed bunting, 1x nuthatch at feeders.
Heard great tit singing - 'teacher teacher' - first sign of spring (wishful thinking!)
