Feb 10th

A far more productive morning at the site than of late. A female Goosander was present on the main pool, interestingly this is the first record of a female for this winter period. The Little Egret was present again on the far side of the small pool, whilst watching it a Mallard ran out from under the tree next to the egret with a Stoat in persuit. The Stoat paused upon reaching the Egret, when both staired at each other, before the stoat continued to persue the Mallard. The Egret was later seen flying off to the east. 50+ Siskin were present in the alders by the fishing lodge. Also noted were 2 Treecreeper, 3+ Bullfinch, 20+ Goldfinch, 5+ Linnet and a Sparrowhawk.
