Local Patch......

An aborted effort at trying to look for Owls on the patch this evening,saw a few more species being recorded which included my first local Pink-footed Geese of the autumn,with a flock of 53 over the patch and a few distant flocks heading for the Wolds from the direction of the humber.Other notable sightings included a pair of Stonechat,flycatching in the pasture field and a Merlin sat on the ground to the south east of the car park.Both the latter sightings were also first sightings for the patch in this autumn/winter period.The only mammal sighting recorded was a lovely Fox along the side of the small wood at the car park.
