Ravenstone on 2nd January 2009

Prompted by the promise of fine weather, I put a picnic together, with the intention of spending the day at Whitemoor Haye, Staffs. However, I noted that some Waxwings had been seen a few hours previously at Kelham Bridge, near Ravenstone, Leics., so I decided to make a small diversion to here. On arrival, there was no evidence of the Waxwings - or of anything that might have attrected them here. However, my visit was made more than worthwhile by a Hen Harrier (ring-tail). I only got some grabbed, and very distant, 'record shots'. Although this place is local to me, I had never been here before, so I decided to have a short look round. A couple of Stonechat were seen, and from the hide, various tits, including Willow Tit were observed. The lake was frozen and a pair of MuteSwans were gingerly making their way across the ice.

I'm pleased to report that the anonymous spam problem seems to be solvable without using word verification. I'm now just using the 'Registered Users - includes OpenID' option in Blogger settings, and I'm not getting any spam - touch wood! I've also not received any contact from people saying that they are no longer able to make comments.
