Sorry for lack of postings. The big news was a female pochard which made a brief visit earlier in the week but for the last two days has accompanied the male on the Middleton model boat pond
Secondly a colour ringed grey wagtail was traced to a juvenile ringed on 23rd Sep 2016 and is the fourth instance of one of our ringed birds remaining to winter in the area
There were 7 gadwall and five tufted duck on the model boat pond today
Thanks to Justine and malcolm for info.
