19th September 2009

Winter is here! At least 10 Gadwall, 1 Shoveler, 2 Tufted Ducks and 4 Teal on Fingers. Also a single Little Grebe. Treecreeper at Kramer hide and the Dead Seat. Possible Spot Fly at the Dead Seat but only a brief glimpse before it disappeared into the foliage never to be seen again.

Treecreeper also heard at the north end of the Woodland Walk.

Had a single Reed Warbler in the main lake reed bed (north side) just before the fence starts. Also had a couple of House Martin's over the Rough, but many more later on in the same area but seemed to be moving through east.

Grey Wagtail on the Canoe Slalom, had already 2/3 over Fingers earlier. A Kingfisher whizzed past while I was watching the Wagtail.

On the main lake at least 46 Coot (is this a record?) and 24 Great Crested Grebe.

Despite the influx of winter wildfowl it was a glorious morning.
