A Trudge in the Mud

By 10.00 I was going stir crazy, so I made my way to Orlestone Forest for a trudge in the mud but at least it was sheltered from the wind. Most the birds were seen around the car park, where a Coal Tit let me try my old 40D which considering the light and the rain did not perform to badly. On the trudge (Wellies a must) Most the common woodland species were seen, lots of Jays, Nuthatches, Long Tailed, Blue and Great Tits, several Great Spotted and Green Woodpeckers, 2 Bullfinches  but still a distinct lack of Redpoll and Siskin. 1.5 hrs later the rain got worse and I gave up and went home.
