I was very surprised to see the 'scrape' etc was ice free. Winterset lakes were pretty well iced over. Amongst the other wildfowl were 2 Greylag Geese, Water Rail and 7 Teal. Buzzard and Green Woodpecker were also present.
The warm sunshine this afternoon tempted Small Tortoiseshell and Comma from hibernation on the Cudworth section of the old Midland Railway. (Chris Parkin)
