Windy Greenwich Peninsular

Posted: January 29, 2013 in Birds, Natural History

Spent the morning at home working and was rewarded with views of the Nuthatch in its usual trees.

Decided to go and visit the small nature reserve on the Greenwich Peninsular as I hadn’t yet been in 2013 and there had been a firecrest seen there a few days before.

Stopped at Tarn on the way
