More from the window.

I really haven't had time to get out and do much birding recently but the views from the house make up for it. The pond in the filed opposite continues to attract god numbers of wildfowl and the odd Lapwing and after 'Doris' its now flooded and will hopefully attract a few passage waders once the water recedes and leaves a muddy margin.

There have been up to 6 Wigeon and 4 Shoveller (see above) utilising it and last night there were 4 Coots. Where did they come from?

Last nights sunset was spectacular and this morning Moel Famau could be seen wreathed in cloud and covered in a smattering of snow.

Come to think of it  - I don't need to go anywhere else.............
