Is it winter yet?

The weather is so uncertain, it’s hard to work out where we are … fog, mist, winds, rain and yet the temperatures are so mild … We managed to get out for a couple of hours today in reasonable  weather and had a walk round Rufford Abbey Country Park. Siskin were glimpsed but no photographs, a tufted duck fooled us into thinking it was a goldeneye. And then, just after the two minutes silence, we looked up and there was a lovely little jay, who hung around for a good twenty minutes. Lots of the usual suspects for that area … nuthatch, treecreeper, finches, tits etc., (and squirrels) but somehow the light was rarely quite good enough.
