Saturday 11th December

I took a walk over this morning with the only new birds being a pair of adult Gt Black-backed Gulls. The wildfowl numbers were as follows:

104 Shoveler, 86 Pochard, 50 Wigeon, 164 Mallard, 46 Tufted Duck, 5 Goosander, 460 Coot, 12 Gt Crested Grebe, 4 Little Grebe.

The area was generally quiet although there was a reasonable amount of activity near the paddocks with 20 Chaffinch, 6 Greenfinch, 1 Bullfinch a mixed flock of tits and 20 Redwing, 6 Fieldfare.

Late afternoon saw a couple of Goosander on the river 24 Teal no waders at all but there were a couple of Song Thrush, 1 Bullfinch and a Sparrowhawk.
