14th November 2009

The storms predicted didn't really arrive although it was quite windy and a heavy shower passed through, fortunately we were in the hide at the time.

Flocks of 12 and 18 Redwing were seen around the Finger lakes along with a handful of Fieldfare. A singing Chiffchaff was heard along the Spit and a Treecreeper was calling around the Crescent.

There were plenty of Goldfinch around again with a double figure flock around the Crescent.

Wildfowl were hard to come by again with a single female Shoveler and up to 3 Teal on Fingers. Also 2 Little Grebe.

Just a solitary male Tufted duck and a pair of Shoveler on the main lake. 20+ Great Crested Grebe, 20+ Cormorant and 30+ Coot also on the main lake. There was also a party of Common Gulls.

Kingfishers were seen at Kramer hide and the main lake hide.
