23rd December

The first year tick for the site for several weeks was a long overdue female Ruddy Duck. Present at the east end of the main pool late morning. The fact that it has taken this long to get the species on to the site yearlist, just goes to show the effect of the national cull so far. A single drake Teal was present on the small pool before moving to the river, whilst Wigeon numbers on the small pool had risen to 76. The Marsh tit was in the regular spot, with several siskin also around the eastern end of the site. A 2nd winter Herring Gull was present early afternoon with 5+ Common Gull.
