BOS Balscote Quarry :: 29 November 2013

A quick visit on a freezing afternoon to see if I could catch up with the great grey shrike. Unfortunately not. Did manage to be entertained by a charm of goldfinches for most of the time, ably supported by a mixed flock of tits. The main excitement came in the form of a kestrel strike as the birds hopped between the bushes and the feeders.

The sightings (14) included: goldfinch, pheasant, blue tit, coal tit, great tit, greenfinch, chaffinch, collared dove, wood pigeon, mallard, kestrel, blackbird, green woodpecker and fieldfare over.
