Blustery winds were bound to result in our quarry hunkering down in whatever shelter presented itself. By the 10.30 rout around 22 species had been recorded including the handsome Red – breasted Goose showing well on the west bank amongst it’s Greylag companions. As the drizzle became more persistent Paul called a halt, but 4 of the 8 participants returned to the hides where recently recharged feeders were hosting various finches and tits bringing the day’s tally to 26.
Blackbird, Black-headed Gull, Blue Tit, Bullfinch, Canada Goose, Carrion Crow, Chaffinch, Coal Tit, Coot, Cormorant, Goldfinch, Great Crested Grebe, Great Tit, Greenfinch, Grey Heron, Greylag Goose, Jay, Magpie, Mallard, Moorhen, Pheasant, Red- breasted Goose, Robin, Teal, Wood Pigeon, Wren.
