Late start

My first walk round Cuerden for the year was on Jan 10 a damp cloudy day. First check Scramble track Long tailed tits and fieldfare with the occasional crow and nearby in W13 siskin and goldfinch. Just across the path in Sue Ryder's field were 32 Canada geese and  single white one. We then went to the lake which still had lots of ice. It didn't stop a male and female goosander fishing in the NE part, scores of mallard, a few coot, moorhen and a single Canada goose. A buzzard flew over which annoyed a great spotted woodpecker. Several molehills showed that at least one mammal is surviving the cold weather. A very quiet day
