Fire - The Crazy World of Arthur Brown

More frost, more sub-zero temperatures and
out of the usual routine we took a wander along our beat
of the River Stour to find, not unusually,
CORMORANTs
video
roosting on the Pylon and Connecting Wires.
There was also a
  video
GREY HERON
occasionally accompamied by a Pied Wagtail and also
video
video
doing some streaching excercises.
Additionally, there was a brief appearance of this
video
video
GREY SQUIRREL
which soon, like ourselves, scurried off to do other things.
First encounter up the Common, or more precisly outside of the
ECO RECYCLING WORKS,
we noted the arrival of the first c4
FURNACES
for the new Power Production Plant and the Wood Processor.
We say the 'first four', which is true, but for all we know they may also be the last??
An emergencey stop at one of the
Solar Panel Compounds
allowed for a brief encounter with this
SPARROWHAWK
video
We appologise for poor picture quality as the birdlanded
while we were still in the car, at an uncomfortabley accute angle
video
and also captured through the windscreen, then this
video
KESTRAL
in hover, note the small birds mobbing it
video
and a disgruntled Meadow Pipit voicing its oppinion!
Not a lot more of interest save for the c2
 MUTE SWANs
 having returned once again to
 a 'topped up' Irrigation Pond,
 where there were also a small squadron of
 MALLARD with a Drake WIGEON
We did have a tentative ID on this unfamiliar
CHOPPER
but we feel it may have been chucked out with the now redundant tinsel?
Note:- we are anticipating a Short Post tomorrow!
