Warnham Local Nature Reserve

Christmas Wreath Making Workshop
Today saw the first of the Friends of Warnham Local Nature Reserve's Christmas Wreath Making Workshops which, once again, were very well received with everyone making wonderfully festive wares for their houses. There are another two sessions  in the Visitor Centre tomorrow so apologies if you cant get into the cafe for a cup of tea or coffee!

Meanwhile on the Reserve there were plenty of birds around. The male Sparrowhawk was again buzzing around Woodpecker Hide which meant most of the birds in there were very skittish. Still a few moths turning up in the trap despite the overnight wind. A summary of today's sightings can be found below:

Green Woodpecker 1, Great Spotted Woodpecker 1, Coal Tit 1, 4 Goldfinch, Black-headed Gull 23, Pochard 1, Herring Gull 150+, Lesser Black-backed Gull 2, Mallard 35, Tufted Duck 5, Cormorant 2, Little Grebe 3, Moorhen 3, Coot 1, Grey Heron 2, Pheasant 5, Great Tit 20+, Long-tailed Tit 3, Woodpigeon 19, Robin 3, Carrion Crow 1, Blue Tit 30+, Dunnock 1, Nuthatch 1, Blackbird 1, Redwing 6
