With a nice evening in prospect I loaded up the bike with all my gear and set off for the pits.
No sign of the Long-tailed Duck this evening but 9 Coot, 2 Oystercatchers, 4 Mute Swan, 4 Moorhen, 65 Wigeon, 25+ Mallard, 50+ Tufties, 12 Gadwall, 3+ Chiffchaff and 20+ Teal. Guess who, once again, did not look at the weather forecast!!!!! At least half an hour hiding in a tunnel from the rain.
Hooray, No people messing around on the lake so quite a few wildfowl present there and around the lanes. 21 Coot, 8 Gadwall, 3 Oystercatchers, 69 Tufties, 33 Mallard, 3 Redshank, 10 Wigeon, 2 Egyptian Geese, 40+ Mute Swan, Chiffchaff, 3 Fieldfare over, 2 Tree Sparrow and 7 Yellowhammer.
