Thursday 28th December
A visit between 9am and 10.30 this morning. 3 Goosander again on Millstream Lake, good numbers of Redwing everywhere today. The pair of Goldeneye were again on Abbey Mead. 3 Little Grebe on Abbey Mead with 100+ Black Headed Gull. Both Great Spot and Green Woodpecker and 2+ Jay on the way around Abbey Mead. I spent 20 minutes at the sunken marsh hoping for Bearded Tit but no sight or sound. 3 Cettis called in the area.
A scan of Brooklands Lake didn't reveal anything new although the Ferruginous Duck had apparently been seen earlier.
