I drove past Millennium Wood early this morning for the first time since before Christmas and paid a brief visit. At long last redwings have arrived on this small reserve and a great tit was also added to the list of birds seen here.
Near Millennium Wood is the "fairy door" and, oh look, a miniature "fairy" bucket has been added over the festive period!
A few more birds have been spotted for the 2012 bird list - redwing mentioned above, a coal tit in the garden and jay and jackdaw seen as I've been driving round.
My mum is still in hospital so, with the constant visits, I am not sure when I'm going to get time to visit Brandon Marsh or Middleton Lakes, although I will try and get out somewhere next week.
Returning to normality . . .
