Goosander flyby

Woke up, looked out of the window and a male Goosander flew past- first time I've seen one in ages at the farm. Also two Peregrines from the bed.
I decided not to be lazy and went for a walk out in the cold- there were a couple of Water Pipits on 100 acre and also 15+ Chaffinch, 10+ Linnet, 15+ Goldfinch and 10+ Reed Bunting about. A Green Woodpecker and a Kestrel were looking for food on the mound.
Everything is frozen and it looks like wildfowl numbers are down.
