Most of the 'usual' bits and bobs around this week. On Monday Mike had three Pochard still at the Borrow Pit and on Wednesday the female Stonechat still at the reservoir.
On Friday, Adrian, Mike C and Mike P were all out and confirmed a Stonechat still at the reservoir, three Pochard still and now two pairs of Stonechat at the Borrow Pit. There was also 20 Wigeon, 12 Teal and 28 Mute Swans on the UCV floods just north of the Borrow Pit.
Yesterday the number of Wigeon up the valley went up to 30. Mark also had a drake Pochard, female Wigeon and Little Grebe all at the reservoir.
This morning the Little Grebe was still on the reservoir and a pair of Goosanders flew over. Up the valley I couldn't find any of the more interesting ducks, but had a Yellowhammer and a Lesser Redpoll flyover. Mike P later had a Lapwing over the Borrow Pit and two Stonechats again.
