Waterworks

Routine fare today in dull conditions but with a good selection of birds on the reserve and overhead.

A count of the wildfowl across the Beds yielded 17 Gadwall, 23 Teal, five Pochard, four Tufted Duck, and seven Shoveler.

A single Redpoll flew past Bed 16 as did a couple of Stock Dove.  A Snipe roosted at the back of Bed 16 at the edge of the reedbed.

A Cetti's Warbler called and a Water Rail squealed almost simultaneously.  There were eight Common Gull passing through over the reserve along with eight Meadow Pipit.
