Thursday 27th January
It was a little colder with the wind coming from the north east, the temperature was just above freezing and it was dull and cloudy. Finally had a good bird today with the Redhead (female) Smew on the Reservoir it was joined by c.30 Goosander, 140 Pochard, 28 Wigeon, c.80 Mallard, c.100 Tufted Duck. The only other birds of note that I saw today was a flock of 50 Siskin and Nuthatch both by the fishing club.
