Weather forecast was for a bright, sunny day and it didn't disappoint for once. This is only my second visit to North Cave - the reserve is built on the site of an old stone quarry.
The first spot of the day was a Fieldfare feeding on berries.
Then on the first pond we saw these Tufted Ducks flying in.
The trees with berries were proving popular this time a Yellowhammer
and then a nice shot of a Blue Tit.
A Wren hiding amongst the branches
and I am not sure what this one is yet?
Hovering over the fields was a Kestrel.
We then went to Turret hide and had some good sightings.
Snipe, this is some of the best views I have had of them.
