After I had completed my WeBs count I had a bike ride around Whitemoor Haye to check out my local patch. Birds noted around the quarry pool were Starling, Redwing, Robin, Cormorant, Tufted Duck, Pochard, Black Headed Gull, Carrion Crow, Little Egret, Greylag Geese, Wigeon, Mallard, Canada Geese, Goldeneye, Great Crested Grebe, Blackbird, Goldfinch, Blue Tit and Great Spotted Woodpecker. On to the lanes and I added Woodpigeon, Buzzard, Meadow Pipit, Tree Sparrow, Great Tit, Dunnock, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Mute Swan (292), Grey Heron, Lapwing, Stock Dove, Golden Plover, Fieldfare, Chaffinch, Peregrine and Pheasant. A great bird-filled day.
