9th December 2014

A quick visit to check the feeders on the way back from the Lizard. The weather was closing in and becoming murkier with driving low cloud, but waterfowl numbers appeared to be up, sort of -

54 Wigeon
47+ Teal
75 Mallard
and c.100 Canada Goose in flight, all from the Stuart Hutchings hide. No sign of the Slavonian Grebe in that part of the reservoir visible unfortunately.

2 Little Egret, 6 Tufted Duck and 6+ Little Grebe additionally.

The feeders were of course in need of replenishment (aka filling), and put the seed stored inside the hide into some metal sweet tins for added security against rodent attack (the wooden storage bin showing signs of ingress).

GSW (Great Spotted Woodpecker) in flight, and a few Chaffinch and tits, but didn't hang about or see anything else unusual/more interesting.

Saturday's Fox ...
