Associate Members Day

Favourable weather for the Associate Members Winter Bird Walk. We saw displaying Teals and other waterfowl including Pochard, Tufted Duck, Gadwall, Shoveler, Mute Swan and Great Crested Grebe.  A single Redshank was feeding on the Northern Lake. A hunting Kestrel showed well and was seen taking prey on two occasions and the rarest bird of the day was a Blackcap.

Other bird group members looked at other areas of the farmlands and recorded 23 Lapwing, 1 Green Sandpiper, 26 Snipe, 3 Jack Snipe, 3 Water Pipit and 2 Stonechat.

Thanks to all the group members for a pleasant mornings winter birding.
