This morning a Red Kite flew over the site, accompanied by a rather diminutive looking Carrion Crow, in the direction of Gedling Pit Top. In a birch tree beside the Causeway was a flock of about fifty Lesser Redpolls. PS.
This morning the Black-headed Gulls resting on the Slurry Lagoon ice were rudely disturbed by a Bittern as if swapped reed-beds in front of the Causeway bench. A flock of 25 Fieldfares were also seen, heading west.
This morning about twenty-two Swifts were feeding over the Slurry Lagoon. A Water Rail fluttered between the reed-beds in front of the bench on the Causeway. There were family parties of Green and Great-spotted Woodpeckers and a Greenfinch was leading a juvenile about the site. PS.
