16th December

Wigeon numbers continue to build, with 28 birds present this morning. The single female Goldeneye was still on the main pool, but coot and other diving duck numbers were lower than the previous week. A minimum of 7 Redpoll joined the rather mobile Siskin flock at the east end of the site. The Marsh tit was again in its favoured spot, flitting between the eastern most rail crossing and the bridge north of the fishing lodge. Around 300 Wood pigeon were roosting in the trees around the sewage works at first light, but soon departed. Other species of note included a Grey Wagtail and 4 Goldcrest.
