Sunday 2 January 2011

Still struggling with my year list though managed to add Heron, Green sandpiper and Water Rail during the guided walk at the cress beds this morning.  Decided to have a drive round in the afternoon to tick off a few easy species such as Magpie, Buzzard, Fieldfare and Red-legged Partridge.  Ended up at Drayton St Leonard so continued to drive past the Drayton Road Pit.  Just before arriving at the pit I came across a group of Swans - another tick.  Decided to have a quick look through for a Bewick and - amazingly six of them. 
I continued on to the pit which is still mostly frozen but a small pond in the middle held a couple of Goldeneye, Gadwall and Wigeon. At least my total has topped 50 - just!
