13-4-11, Whitemoor Haye.
After a visit to the doctors because of my poorly foot I was told to rest so off to Whitemoor Haye it was, with the dog, to do a bit of birding. It was a bit late when I got there, about 18.45, and it was already quite gloomy and it didnt get better. Birds noted around the tracks were Woodpigeon, Dunnock, Wren, Tree Sparrow, Robin, Carrion Crow, Blue Tit, Swallow, Mistle Thrush, Mallard, Cormorant, Grey Partridge, Lapwing, Chaffinch, Yellowhammer, Buzzard, Magpie, Mute Swan, Pheasant and Meadow Pipit. Then it was through the ever increasing gloom to the quarry pool to see what was around. Birds noted were Tufted Duck, Teal, Canada Geese, Blackcap, Greenshank, Redshank, Ringed Plover, Little-ringed Plover and Starling. An ok visit, better than sitting at home and I came home with the bonus of a Greenshank for a year tick.
