Peregrine – 6th January

This morning there were hundreds of Greylag and Canada Geese roosting on the Slurry Lagoon. They left en-mass as the morning lightened up. The new pylon had the two Peregrines on it for much of the morning, the female catching a gull and taking it up there to feed on. A Water Rail flew across in front of the Causeway bench and several Cetti’s were singing. PS.

Barnacle Goose – 28th October

This morning the Ruff was still present on the Slurry Lagoon but was flushed by a Fox. There were also 25 Wigeon. On the Large Gravel Pit there were two Whooper Swans and a Barnacle Goose with about thirty Mute Swans. The two Peregrines were on the pylons and a Yellowhammer and Chiffchaff were also recorded. About 100 Pink-footed Geese flew over to the west. PS.
