Ivinghoe Hotspot

A mid morning visit to Ivinghoe Beacon. Extremely high winds especially up on the ridge, not much about as you might expect with such poor weather conditions, however, on the way back to the car park I noticed a Blue Tit in the hedgerow and on closer inspection I could see another bird flitting about in the background. I put my bins on the birds and noticed the Blue Tit was closely accompanied by a Goldcrest. Almost immediately they were joined by a Marsh Tit, Treecreeper, Coal Tit and Nuthatch. All birds were within 4 feet of each-other.
Then I crossed the road towards Incombe Hole. The only noteworthy birds were Goldcrest and Long Tailed Tit. I did, however, have a great view of 2 Weasels.
