Started at Lower where there were 8 Goosander, several Pochard, Shoveler, Tufted Duck and Teal, a single Little Grebe and a bit of a surprise in the form of
County tick an' all!
Carried onto Upper where there were 123 Greylags but nothing scarcer, plenty of Lapwing and Great Crested Grebe and a scattering of gulls including an adult GBBG.
Back round to Lower where a mini twitch had developed, turns out these were a Bittell tick for quite a few regulars!
Good days birding and the year list bumbles onto 52.
Got my hands on a Leica APO-televid 77 to try out for a few days, anyone reccomend or use one of these?
