Whilst Friday's weather was a bit extreme with very blustery winds, with everything keeping its head down in fear of being caught up and swept away; that of today (Saturday ) is very pleasant. Despite this welcoming change little appears to have altered, at least superficially. The finch flock seems to have dispersed and far fewer Siskins are around, evidence of some movement in activity, but no other major changes or occurrences have taken place. Finally, at least two Wrens were seen, both skulking around so it seems we need to wait awhile before the woodland echoes to their explosive song. As the darkness of the evening deepened the local Tawny Owl struck up, its wavering tones carrying far and wide across the now becalmed landscape.
