Absolutely November.

The raw cold and stillness as always comes as a bit of a surprise after autumn.
Little Owl in the usual place on the way out to Mere Sands today, with Bullfinch, Siskin, Greater ‘Pecker and Nuthatch there.
Plenty of Teal on the open water.
And at Martin Mere, Redwings, Bullfinch, two Cetti’s Warblers, Marsh Harrier, Common Buzzards and clamouring Pink Feet and Whoopers of course.
Clusters of Fieldfares, Mistle Thrushes and Blackbirds across the mosses.
They say April is the cruellest month, but it’s not, it’s November.
Absolutely November.

  1. RSPB Liverpool are happy to announce that we are hosting a screening of a stunning and thought provoking film called The Messenger. To be screened at the Picturehouse @ FACT cinema in Liverpool on Sunday 26 November 1pm . Rated PG, running time 90 minutes.
    All ticket holders will be entered into a raffle on the day including some goodie bags from the bird friendly coffee producers https://birdandwild.co.uk/
    After the screening all viewers are welcome to join the group in the cafe for an informal ‘ornithological social’ for anyone who wants to talk about the film, the issues it raises and more generally to find out about the RSPB’s activities in the area etc.
    Tickets available now from fact:
    The film is explores mankind’s deep-seated connection to songbirds and the devastating impact humans have had on bird species, from urbanisation, climate change and pesticides.
