More Sculthorpe Moor

Sculthorpe Moor is always a good place to see Bullfinch, and this years visit was no different. A pair were at the first viewing screen as we stopped for a look at the feeders. The male so resplendent with its peachy red colouration, showing up starkly against the bare branches. Not as easy to spot once the leaves are out though. They are quite secretive and even their call is quite low pitched and easy to miss.



A Pheasant looking for easy pickings underneath the feeders.

It wasn't really that cold. Mum and Dad always dress like this. I didn't even notice the writing on the bench. :-)

A lovely view from one of the hides across the marsh. The pale wintry sky even looks cold.
