Wednesday 24th November
Left work at 4pm with the hope of walking the dog around the reservoir before dark. In the event it was pretty dark when Joy the Mutt and I arrived. There were the usual duck species but it was too dark to count, but the highlight was undoubtedly the 15 Goosander (5 males) that were on the main pool. The gull roost held a 1000 of so gulls with a good number of Herring amongst the many LBB’s but it was too dark to scan the raft. That was about it. Hopefully get over on Saturday at some stage.
