CFBWBG Winter Tour

Mark, Paul (aka P-Go) and I led the third and final CFBW Bird Group tour of 2012 today. There was a decent turnout of about fifteen eager birders and the weather was lovely apart from one very sharp shower. We'd been hoping that there would be number of finches, possibly even Bramblings, for this tour but, in recent weeks, finches have been very thin on the ground indeed. We did manage to show everybody Little Owl, Common Buzzard, Bullfinch, Yellowhammer, Skylark, Fieldfare and Redwing, amongst others. Only a few people saw the single Siskin that flew over.
