Treecreeper, nuthatch, chaffinches and snow


Corversbos fields snow, 28 December 2014

On 28 December, to Corversbos and Gooilust nature reserves. Lots of snow had fallen, as this Corversbos photo shows.

In Corversbos, great spotted woodpecker sound. A nuthatch in a tree. A short-toed treecreeper in another tree.

Scores of chaffinches in trees closer to Gooilust.

Near the Gooilust entrance was a Christmas tree. Not with baubles like in usual Christmas trees; but with bulb-shaped bird food. It attracted three blue tits.

At some spots in Gooilust, the snow had melted.

At other spots, water had frozen, making footpaths slippery.

Most ditches were still frozen.

As we walked back from Gooilust to Corversbos, the chaffinches were still there. We had no telephoto lens to photograph the finches, so here you can see just this photo of their trees.
