Another overnight frost with some light snow, by morning the wind had shifted to the south and with the sunshine made it feel quite pleasant (easily said when you're well wrapped up!).

I prefer one of their many other names - Green Plover.
The Pinkfoot have been feeding in large numbers in the fields next to Heysham Moss. They left early this evening and Janet took this shot from Meldon Road.
Although this picture was taken just east of the recording area, the lead birds of this flock would have already crossed over the eastern boundary.
As ever, with Janet's pictures, it's best to "open" them to see the full detail.
Finally, this is the post equivalent of a trailer, I made myself a tiny net. The next slow news day, I'll show you what I caught with it today.
