A wren sits atop a bramble bush with the tree lined Coach Road behind.

Coach rd and Carr mill dam,
Yippee!! an extra hour in bed as the clocks went back an hour. Still got up at the same time and then I ventured to the Coach rd. There were plenty of pinkfeet airbourne and I probably seen a couple of thousand . 30 tree sparrows in the same hedge as the other day seem settled. 5 redwing and a couple of fieldfare. 4 buzzards and sparrowhawk also.
It was then off to Carr Mill Dam to try and see yesterdays firecrest. Needle in a haystack job but a stroll up the goyt valley was very pleasant this morning. I didn't see the firecrest but a couple of goldcrests with the long tailed tits, a siskin, a female stonechat, and 30 fieldfares were seen.
