Not enough birds

Sunday dawned with thick fog again and I really should have just stayed in bed but the lure of Maridalen was too strong. There were two occurrences of note in an otherwise bird lite two hours.
Firstly, it was nice to note the first Bramblings amongst the growing flocks of Chaffinches. The Chaffinch flocks now contain females whereas less than a week ago were entirely made up of males. My first Chiffchaff of the year was of course also a sighting of note J

In the afternoon I had a walk with Mrs OB in warm sunshine and we saw two Lizards and an Adder although increase or change in the generally low number of birds.
