Wednesday 16th February

A trip around the reservoir this morning with Captain Daylate, there was nothing unusual but it was a pleasant few hours resulting in 46 species.

Lots of passerines today with c.40 Blackbird, 3 Redwing, 2 Mistle Thrush, 3 Song Thrush, Treecreeper, Green Woodpecker, 3 Gt Spotted Woodpecker, 3 Bullfinch and a singing Goldcrest.
There were in the region of 200 Pochard, 13 Wigeon and 53 Goosander.

Severn Trents appeal for people to keep their dogs on leads and under control is falling on deaf ears with todays score in The Shustoke Doggy Soccer league.

Dirty Dog Heads 11 v 3 Leeds.

Finally, to the group of 3 Neds that turned up with their Staffordshire Bull Terriers that they allowed to run wild “Mind your Knuckles on the Step”. They were worthy of more study than the birds. The “Missing Link” is alive and well and wearing Burberry!
