Sept 21st.

Nothing new at the pool today, 3 Common Sandpipers in front of the sailing club,a Hobby went over heading north, 67 Cormorant fishing and 2 Buzzards over north side. 12 Chiffchaff, Willow Tit, Lesser Whitethroat and Blackcap noted around the pool, and 37 L B B Gulls loafing in the middle. A good number of Little Grebe with 38 being noted which is about average for this time of the year. The Canada Geese flock has now moved on but the 3 Greylags still remain. 8 Siskin were feeding along the stream between the two pools, and Nuthatch heard there but not seen. And finally 18 Meadow Pipits headed south over the car park.
