Wednesday 16 January

Had a spare hour today, so off I went. For the second time this week I could only locate one Gt Northern Diver so it is save to assume that we are now down to one. There was a flock of c.40 Lapwing feeding on a nearby field. Whilst on the reservoir there were three unmentionables, 6 Shoveler, 2 Gadwall, c.110 Pochard, c.140 Tufted Duck and 18 Goosander.

Very few passerines around but there was a small mixed flock of thrushes with 5 Song Thrush, 1 Mistle c.20 Fieldfare and around a dozen Redwing.

The fields off Moat House still held a good number of birds with at least one Brambling.
