A belated Christmas Robin sketched at Attenborough. Very obliging it sat still in a Hawthorn bush for some minutes (possibly waiting for us to throw it some food). On the water were a good selection of birds including Goosander, Teal, Wigeon and a few pairs of smart Goldeneyes.

Boxing Day walk round Bennerley. Two Bullfinches munching the buds of a Hawthorn and a large flock of Redwings; this one perched at the top of a tree buffetted by the wind.
