October 20th

Went out this morning in the hope that the strong south westerly winds might have blown a sea bird in, but no such luck. Due to to wind passarines were keeping low and were therefore difficult to locate. Goldcrests were still numbering at least 6, with 3 Coal tit and a willow tit, all sheltering in the bushes along the railway line. 25+ Siskin, 30 Redwing and a single Fieldfare were also around the area to the north of the small pool. An immature male Peregrine passed low over the eastern end of the small pool at around 9:30, heading south. Tufted Duck numbers on the two pools have increased slightly over the past few days with around 35 present today. The seemingly ever present drake Gadwall was still at the eastern end of the main pool.
