August Linacre WeBS Count and Annual Report 2012- 2013

This month's WeBS count took place at the weekend, and was carried out by Mandy and Barbara of the Chesterfield RSPB Group (thanks). As is expected in the summer months, the counts were quite low, but in line with previous years. Here are the details: Mallard (50), Moorhen (3), Coot (12), Tufted Duck (16), Great-crested Grebe (2; 1 adult and 1 juvenile), Mandarin (5), Grey Heron (1) and Grey Wagtail (2).

As well as this update, I also wanted to include a link to the most recent WeBS Report that has just be published by the BTO. As well as the paper copy I received, the report is also available on-line. Here's a link to the BTO page. Just find Linacre Reservoirs in the Locations drop down menu, and then you can see all the details of the counts since 1967!!!!
