  • An incredible lack of birds in the usually busy airspace outside my window during the gales today. A single crow was the only bird brave enough to enter my line of vision all day and it looked distinctly uncomfortable battling against the crosswind whipping up over the plateau! (Mark Ward)

  • Flock of c30 redwings moving between trees east of Avocet late am. (Mark Ward)
Tuesday, 16th January
  • Pale Brindled Beauty, Winter & Northern Winter moths at Osprey porch (Nigel Willits)
Monday, 15th January
  • Cormorant flew south-east outside my window. (Mark Ward)
  • 2.45pm. A woodcock flying over the garden, in front of the Avocet building and over the Snipe building. (Barrie Cooper)
  • Kestrel wheeling over the quarry from the newly felled areas, 2 Common buzzards, both heading out towards Biggleswade Common. A mature holly off the plateau, Stratford Road side, is laden with berries and attracting good numbers of redwing and fieldfare. (Ian Hayward)
