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.

Bearded Tit – 28th October

A Bearded Tit was heard in the reed bed in the NE corner of the Slurry Lagoon this morning. It was later seen by another observer as it flew out into the centre of the reed bed on the dry end. There were also two Little Egrets, several Redpolls, and a Chiffchaff. Redwing and Fieldfares were also seen in small numbers. PS.
