A very poor day for photography so no new bird pictures I’m afraid.

Instead a day out year ticking some of the local species around my county at this time of year.

Cromford Wharf is now the traditional site for Hawfinch and eventually 5 birds gave themselves up. On the River Derwent Dipper was singing and 2 birds showed well. Also Nuthatch, 2 Goosander and a party of 14 Long-tailed Tit.

Moving onto the tops at Beeley we had 30+ Coal Tit, Tree Creeper & Nuthatch at a local feeding station, also several Red Grouse on the Moor.

Next stop was Carsington Water for the 2 Great Northern Diver, Very few wildfowl for this time of year. A Great Spotted Woodpecker was near the Paul Stanley Hide.

Finally finishing off at Bradley for Mandarin. Year list is 132.
