19th Feb

A curlew called briefly mid morning from the direction of the southern field. It was then heard 10 minutes later, calling several times, heading over the small pool in a north easterly direction. 4 Teal (2 drakes) were present on the small flooded pool at the eastern end, before flying off east. A single drake Goosander was present at the west end of the main pool until 9:45, when it flew off in the direction of Ladywalk. Good numbers of Siskin and Goldfinch were along the river and around the small pool. A notable movement of Redwing occured throughout the morning, involving several hundred birds. There was also several Mistle Thrush around the site this morning. Lapwing numbers were up to 24. 2 Herring Gulls were also noted.
