9 December

2 female Goldeneye were present in the centre of the main pool late morning. The small pool had finally began to attract the first few Wigeon of the regular wintering flock, with 2 drakes and 2 ducks. Interestingly the group that overwinter on site didn't begin to build in numbers until mid December last year (dispite other sites locally reaching regular wintering numbers around the middle of November) and looks set to do the same this year. The Marsh Tit was with a single Coal tit, Goldcrest and Treecreeper by the inlet for the small pool. With a second Treecreeper in the eastern corner. A Grey Wagtail was also noted.
