December 1st

Upon arival this morning 2 drake Goosander were present at the western end of the main pool. These are presumably the same two drakes that have been present further north along the valley for over a week. Another surprise this morning was the sudden sharp rise in Wigeon numbers, with 11 present on the small pool and a further 3 on the main pool, probably a result of the recent cold weather. Other species noted this morning were 14 Pochard, 2 Gadwall, 4+ Goldcrest and 3+ Siskin.
