Sunday 16th January
I went over today to carry out the BTO Wildfowl count with Captain Daylate, the numbers were rather disappointing with sailing taking place on the main pool there was very little there with most of the duck on the smaller east pool. The total (both pools) were:
Little Grebe 2, Gt Crested Grebe 13, Mute Swan 3, Canada Goose 18, Mallard 124, Tufted Duck 138, Wigeon 4, Pochard 70 and Coot c.340.
On the plus side there were Siskin present and we had a flock of about 12 in the car park and there was a Grey Wagtail of the car park feeding on the reservoir edge.
