December 5th

Once again a large group of Gulls dropped on to the main pool mid morning. 17 Herring Gull and 4 Common gull were mixed in with the flock. A nice surprise was a rather inquisitive Weasel at the eastern end. The Weasel bounded towards me down the path before stopping just 2 meters from my feet, it then circled me keeping at a 2 meter distance before running off again down the path. Wish i'd have had the camera with me. Duck numbers had decreased with only 5 Pochard and 14 Wigeon, there was also no sign of any Ruddy Duck. 1 Redpoll and 10 Siskin flew over the eastern end, it appears that the main flock are now favouring somewhere further along the river to feed. Also noted this morning were 2 Treecreeper, 5 Goldcrest, 3 Nuthatch and 2 Buzzard.
