This week at Priory

17 Bewick's Swans. Flew off north Sunday 10th per DK.

There was an Oystercatcher on the ice on the main lake on Friday 15th per Tony P.

Saturday 16th:

A grim morning, very wet and a cold wind. The majority of the main lake was still frozen as was Fingers. At least 170 Mute Swans on arrival, quite a few movements in and out during the morning. Pochard, Tufted Duck and Shoveler all present but tricky to count in the throng.

A single Little Grebe on the navigation channel. Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers also seen.
