St Ives

Sunday November 25th p.m.
 A wet and windy morning meant postponing our birding until this afternoon when
the sun made an appearance bringing the temperature up to 6°C.It was only a brief visit
to St. Ives with the highlight being two female & a male Goosander on the water who soon
flew off shortly after our arrival.The bird feeders in front of the hide were empty so not much
happening here either apart from a Grey Squirrel.The sun at this time of year is of course very
low in the sky which gives for some good lighting effects on the landscape.
