Wildfowl today: fem Goldeneye W lake bay, pr Shoveler & 1 drake Wigeon W lake, 6+ Gadwall. c10 Pochard, and the usual c100 Tufties.
Negatives were: the Scaup seems to have done a bunk; 2 people walking a dog right through the conservation area; and late p.m. a guy with a large blue plastic sack full of old bread and what looked like bits of pizza, feeding the whole lot to the gulls and worse still the Mute Swans.
There needs to be a much more prominent notice asking people not to do this. The current laminated A4 sheet [if it's still there] goes unnoticed.
