Waterworks

It was again a beautiful, cool, still morning at the Waterworks and with plenty of interest on and over the reserve.

On Bed 18, a personal best count of 12 Shoveler were in company with six Gadwall, four Tufted Duck, and two Little Grebe.  Three Goldcrest and two Chiffchaff remained in the bushes along the main path.  A Reed Bunting was present in the reeds.

A flyover Jackdaw was again a scarce sighting with other skyward sightings that included two Skylark, three Stock Dove, two Little Egret, ten Fieldfare, seven Greater Black Backed Gull, single Sparrowhawk (that was in an intense battle with a corvid), and an adult Peregrine that flew onto its favoured pylon.
