Below are all the reported bird sightings for Cromwell Bottom nature
reserve in January 2020. Many thanks to all who contributed, most
especially Mike Henshaw and Jeff Milne.
Highlight is undoubtably the over-wintering chiffchaff but the long
staying water rail on the lagoon is also worth a mention.
55 birds in total.

A great range of birds, but I don't see a redpoll on the list. Are they not around any more?
There have not been any sightings of redpoll reported to me yet this year. This time last year we had plenty of redpoll and siskin but we haven't even had many siskins this year. It may be due to the milder weather we have had this year.
Thanks for your reply, Vic. Yes, the weather is a likely explanation. BTO records in the last 2 weeks only show redpoll sightings in the Leeds, Harrogate and Wakefield areas and also much further west of CB, as far as I can tell.
