|Hybrid Geese at Pool Hall - these two have been around over the last few years and have been the |
source of the many valley reports for "Snow Geese"
|The path between Great Moor ridge and Sling Wood, just North of Freehold Wood|
|Part of the Corvid flock The Grotto near Trysull|
|Goldfinch on one of the many canal mooring feeding stations|

|Treecreeper - on the same Alders by the canal at Awbridge Farm, |
where I used to watch them in the 90's
|Little Grebe - Emblem of Smestow Valley- most leave the canals before attaining this level of breeding plumage, |
