Made a trip to Blashford Lakes with my birding buddy Pete Blanchard. A beautiful February morning over Ibsley Water, spotted a Goldeneye, Gadwall, Little Grebe and Shoveler. From the woodland hide we were treated to Siskin, Chaffinch, Lesser Redpoll, Brambling and Nuthatch to mention a few species.
On the way home we stopped off at Wyke Down to see if the Shorties were present this year. After a couple of hours it became evident that they weren't.
A great day birding!
