Linacre - 26th December 2011

Popped down to Linacre for a couple of hours this morning for a very blustery walk around. Birdwise everything was pretty quiet with the usual species seen in average numbers: Mallard (104), Moorhen (7), Grey Heron (2), Black-headed Gull (67- highest count this year), Mandarin (11), Coot (6), Great-crested Grebe (1 adult).

Very few woodland birds were seen, but Blue, Great and Long-tailed Tits were present along with Carrion Crows, Woodpigeons and a singing Wren.

Most notable was the increase in water levels on the middle reservoir, as the works come to an end. Here are a couple of pictures to show the difference over the last few months.
