The numbers and variety of the species of wildfowl so far this year have remained remarkably static, I still haven’t recorded: Teal, Shelduck, Gadwall, Ruddy Duck and Goldeneye so far this year and Northern Shoveler haven’t been seen for nearly four weeks!
Anyway today I had a bit of a surprise with a Dunlin at the east end it seemed rather settled but wasn’t there when I returned from the small pool but may well have relocated elsewhere on the reservoir. Warbler corner held 40 Siskin and after a ten week absence 2 Lesser Redpoll. It was cold today with a bit of east in the wind so hopefully the first migrants should be through within a couple of weeks.
