Thursday 2nd December

Sod Work! I took the morning off but there were none of yesterdays fireworks, but it was still good, there were about the same number of wildfowl as yesterday (probably more Pochard, less Goosander) but there was a male Goldeneye. The best bird was a Dunlin that flew through heading east but it did not appear to land and I lost it in the south-east corner. There were plenty of Redwings and about 12 Fieldfare. A Green Woodpecker was picked up along the river but it was still quiet for passerines.

I now believe that we have a record number of species for the Reservoir in a single year, I will tot it up this afternoon and post the new total.

Roll on tomorrow!
