Saturday 31st October 2009
Made an early start and was in the hide 06:30. Sadly it was raining shortly after and I feared I may be spending the whole day in the hide as the rain seemed set in for the day. Fortunately there was some interest during the morning with at least 9 Teal to and fro and several visits by a Kingfisher. A few small parties of Redwing were seen about. A couple of Little Grebe were at the south end of West Fingers and there were 36 Mute Swans on the main lake plus the 5 on Fingers. From the north side of the main lake Coot and Great Crested Grebe numbers seemed to be down from the the previous week. Finally the rain relented around 09:00.
