Stockers Lake

Back 'home'.  It was a really pleasant day - the sun was out and Stockers looked primed for Spring.


The first sound, a Chiffchaff called from the eastern end as did a couple of showy Goldcrest from the woodland.

On the water, a total of 12 Red-Crested Pochard, mostly drakes were displaying to a couple of unresponsive females - not an unfamiliar turn of events.  Three Goldeneye were seen on the water, two of them drakes still lingering but not long till they begin their journey north.


On Stockers farm, 57 Wigeon remained, with two Oystercatcher present there.  The field was flooded and looked great for an imminent LRP.



A small flock of Siskin were present in the alders with two Treecreeper and a singing Nuthatch.

A Common Buzzard appeared from over the fields at the back of the reserve.
