Cosmeston

A drake Ring-necked Duck was seen yesterday on E lake by Richard Facey. Sadly there was no sign this morning. A large no. of Canada Geese had arrived, having with them this Barnacle Goose of unknown origin, although one had been at Ogmore recently. There were also 3 Shoveler present and the 2 pairs of Gadwall still.

Cosmeston

highlight of brief walk this morning – 3 male Bullfinch by the W lake overlook and a couple of Redwing there, 4 Gadwall and 1 drake Pochard on W lake and about 100 Tufties in total. No sign of Lsr Scaup [gone back to Cardiff?]. Several Water Rail squealing in E lake reeds.
