Linacre WeBS Walk - 17th December 2011

This month's WeBS walk took place this morning with 5 members of the Chesterfield RSPB group present. The weather wasn't too bad, with just a few rain showers, but the bottom car park was interesting to say the least, being covered in a thin layer of ice, which made parking fun!

Birdwise we did well with last week's Goldeneye still present along with 97 Mallard, 36 Black-headed Gull, 7 Moorhen, 10 Coot, 2 Grey Herons, 1 Great-crested Grebe, 1 Little Grebe (doing battle with a fish), 22 Tufted Duck, 1 Pied Wagtail, 1 Grey Wagtail, 15 Mandarins and best of all 6 Teal.

Birds seen in the woods included a lovely male Bullfinch and then, on the way out, a flock of 14 Lapwing were found feeding in the fields.
