Winter Wonderland

After quite a bit of snow through the night we had a couple of hours checking out Branton and Hedgeley Ponds. Branton was fairly quiet, Wigeon, Teal and Tufted Ducks being the most numerous.
On walking down the River Breamish just below the County Bridge we noted a Kingfisher being
chased by a Dipper, on the ponds themselves were 2 Scaup and at least 6 Little Grebe with another 2 on the River.
