Feb 9th

After the sailing at the weekend the main pool was unfrozen but aside from 20+ Wigeon and 3 Greylag Geese there was little of note. The small pool remains completly frozen over. The most notable species was a Grey Wagtail which flew north over the main pool; although this species is usually seen daily at the site throughout the year, there were very few sightings in December last year and no birds had been recorded prior to this bird so far this year. Other species of note included GS Woodpecker, 2 Buzzard, 4 Bullfinch, 8+ Greenfinch, 30+ Goldfinch and 3 Common Gull. The remains of a Little Grebe on the north shore was probably due to predation by a Grey Heron.
