Willow The Wisp

I've always found the local Willow Tit population quite tame and confiding as this photo from this morning demonstrates;

Some Long-tailed Tit's nearby wern't quite so obliging;

Despite Castle Lake still succumbing to a seventy percent covering of ice the remaining areas produced a varied selection including two additions to the year list, namely 2 Grey Wagtail and at least 5 singing Skylark.
Best of the rest were 3 Shelduck, 2 Gadwall, female Pintail, 4 Pochard, Sparrowhawk, 2 Kestrel, 2 Oystercatcher, Green Sandpiper and 2 Mistle Thrush.
