Linacre WeBS - November 2014

Last weekend Mandy from the Chesterfield RSPB Group carried out November's WeBS walk at Linacre Reservoirs.

Details are: Mallard (77), Mandarin (a minimum of 50 were flushed by dog walkers), Tufted Duck 26, Grey Heron (1), Coot (3), Moorhen (6), Black-headed Gull (17) and Cormorant (1).

As you can see, nothing outstanding, but it's always really nice to see the Mandarins at this time of year, and Mallard numbers are beginning to pick up. Another count of 67 Mandarins was recorded later in the week on the Sheffield Bird Study Group website.
