Yellow-legged Gull – 1st February

This morning the three water bodies were all mostly frozen over. There were a lot of gulls resting on the ice, including Great Black-backed, Lesser Black-backed, Herring, Common and Black-headed. Amongst one group of Black-headed Gulls on the Deep Pit was a Yellow-legged Gull. Also a pair of Black Swans have arrived from somewhere and are on the Deep Pit. At the dry end of the Slurry Lagoon a flock of about thirty Lesser Redpolls were feeding in the Birch trees. PS.

Egyptian Goose – 3rd December

This morning two Egyptian Geese flew north over the site. A Barn Owl was seen flying from the box and a Lesser Redpoll was seen on the Lower Path. On the Large Gravel Pit there were fourteen Goldeneye and about 160 Pink-footed Geese flew west over the site.   PS.

In the afternoon a male Bearded Tit was seen in the Slurry Lagoon reed bed, a Peregrine was on one of the pylons and another 64 Pink-footed geese flew over.   RW.
