A good year for Crossbills

A good year for Crossbills



It would appear to be a good Crossbill year with sightings now regular in certain parts of Suffolk with this in mind I visited a drinking pool they have been visiting and with patience I was rewarded by several visits from up to nine Crossbill.

A Jay and several Siskin also visited the pool and the area was alive with the sound of Woodlark singing.

Dartford Warbler and Stonechat were first heard then seen and a large female Sprawk flew over as a Tawny Owl made a short call to announce itself and give me an unexpected year tick.

Year list now 198.
