24th December

Another site year tick came in the form of a Woodcock. An influx of this species into the midlands in recent weeks has led to much searching of likley areas of the site. Today all the searching finally paid off, with a single bird flushed from along the river at the eastern end. The bird flew off low north east between the trees and off site. Yesterdays female Ruddy duck was still on the main pool along with 4 Gadwall and a single female Goldeneye. 2 drake and 2 female Goosander were present mid afternoon, before being joined by a further 2 drakes before dusk. Other species noted included 8 RL Partridge, Goldcrest, Treecreeper, Redpoll, Grey Wagtail and a Yellowhammer (over).
