Feb 18th

Another addition to the site year list this morning came in the form of a Peregrine, which flew high west over the main pool before stooping down over Ladywalk. The Little Egret was in its usual spot on the small pool, and a drake Goosander put an apperence in late morning in the centre of the main pool. Single Yellowhammers have been passing over the eastern end regularly for the past few weeks, but a count of 8 over today was notable. Pochard numbers were up to 45. Finally a very high Lapwing count (50+), was only achieved after the Peregrine flushed them off nearby Ladywalk.
