Doreen and myself decided to walk into Whitbread Hollow,checking the mist-net runs for Woodcock or Water Rail, then walk into Cow Gap and down into the Gully and onto the beach, my first time into the Hollow since my transplant. Not to many bushes with berries and therefore no Waxwings and in fact very few birds seen during our walk:

Kestrel 1
Great Spotted Woodpecker 1
Rock Pipit 1 Cow Gap beach.
Blackbird 8
Goldcrest 1
Long Tailed Tit 5
Jay 1
Raven 2 heading towards Holywell.

View from Holywell towards Langney Point.

Whitbread Hollow.

Long Tailed Tit at the start of Foyles Way.

It must be Christmas!!!
