22nd November 2022 – Stoke Park Estate, Bristol

It was very wet underfoot but there was good light and it was still quite mild on my walk through our local park this morning.

A pair of stonechats brightened my day which might have been even better if I had managed to find the firecrests which other local birders have been reporting regularly in the last few days. Another challenge for another day.
