A Wintry Day

 A look around Walland Marsh in a snow storm making viewing very difficult with visability down to less than 50 yds at times. At the feeders north of the drying barn 6 Tree Sparrows amongst the House Sparrows and chaffinches.
At the barn a small flock of Yellowhammers, Chaffinches and Goldfinches feeding on the spilt grain.
No sign of any Swans or Geese but visability was poor.
At Scotney no sign of the Red Necked Grebe,  but 2 Stonechats on the perimeter fence and the Barnacle Geese seemingly enjoying the snow also at least 4 Marsh Harriers around the pit.
At Denge Marsh 2 Black-necked Grebes,  
3 Ruddy Duck, a flyover Bittern and another 3 Marsh Harriers. On the way back home over Walland Marsh 4 more different Marsh Harriers and several flocks of Redwing and Fieldfare being chased by the local  Mistle Thrushes.
