|Goshawk Thompson Water 13/02/14 (Note the deep chested appearance)|
The only raptor seen was a Goshawk which appeared from beyond the trees to the east and although quite distant, the size and deep-chested appearance of this raptor was diagnostic.
Thw woodland carr habitat along the west boundary of the water held Marsh Tit, Coal Tit, Great and Blue Tits. A couple of Goldcrests were in song.
Finally, the drive through Thompson produced 2 Red Foxes, one at Thompson Grove (woodland) and one in the village.
