Linacre- WeBS Walk 17th July 2011

After being postponed yesterday because of the bad weather, I popped out this morning to carry out this month's Wetland Bird Survey (WeBS).  Good numbers of Mallard and Mandarin Duck were about and the first sign of winter was evident in the shape of 2 Cormorants!


Summer migrants that were still around were 2 singing Chiffchaffs, Swallow and 8 House Martins recorded. Counts for this month's WeBS walk were: Mallard (60), Tufted Duck (24), Little Grebe (2 adults, no sign of any juveniles), Coot (8), Moorhen (9), Mandarin Duck (20), Pied Wagtail (1), Grey Wagtail (2),
