Other species of water bird present today were: Mallard (76), Black-headed Gull (67), Goosander (4; 1 male and 3 redheads), Coot (9), Moorhen (9), Grey Heron (1), Tufted Duck (8), Mandarin Duck (8) and Grey Wagtail (1).
Away from the water I had my first singing Chaffinch of the year, along with a Stock Dove that was feeding in the fields by the entrance with a small flock of Woodpigeons. Another highlight of the walk was a small group of thrushes (1 Redwing, 1 Song Thrush and 2 Mistle Thrushes) that were feeding in the field by the lower car park.
