Saturday 24th January

Went over this afternoon but the Reservoir was quiet as the boats were out however there were a couple of hundred gulls gathered later on with a sprinkling of Herring, Common and LBB Gulls with the Black-headed.

The temperature has certainly dipped with the wind coming from a more northernly direction. Most of the wildfowl were on the small pool with 24 Wigeon, 83 Pochard, 6 Shoveler and 14 Goosander late on.

The highlight today was the Redshank feeding on the south shore the first for the year. In general though it is quiet.
