Sheffield has the smallest and the fastest bird at the moment. Goldcrests, like the one here, which I watched in the garden the other day, are still feeding in gardens in the area, sometimes on fat-feeders as insects are still a bit scarce at this time of year. Even more exciting- Sian told me last night that the Sheffield Peregrines are back on camera at St George’s church. For anyone anywhere in the country, just search Sheffield University Peregrines- you’ll find a link to the live nest-cam but this year they have two camera’s- one on the nesting box and a new one which is really welcome, with a wider view, including a perch on the side of the Church- last night a Peregrine was there for ages, as it got dark. Conditions: A sunny morning giving way to steady rain in the afternoon. Temperature: Max 10- Min 4c.
