Boxing Day

Had a good walk from home to Shustoke and back and saw around 80 Yellowhammer in two flocks near to the main road. At the Reservoir there was a single Barnacle Goose with the Canada Geese no doubt it was a feral bird but nice just the same.

The two Gt Northern Diver were at the east end avoiding the boats and I have to say they look settled. It was packed with people around the Reservoir today with quite a few birders present. There was a good flock of Siskin and Redpoll in the Alders along the railway line, but on the whole it was quite quiet.
