Friday 18th January

Well the weather resulted in an early closure at work, so the wife and headed out and checked the res. I thought there might be a few more birds than there were, but I was wrong. The snow was falling pretty thickly and the wind was biting. It looks like it was too much for the last remaining Great Northern Diver, I couldn’t locate it, it might still be there but I searched pretty thoroughly.

There were however a male and female Goldeneye, 29 Wigeon, c.100 Pochard c.100 Tufted Duck. Passerines were thin on the ground but there were several Meadow Pipits at the waters edge.
