Anyway, i only got over to check the lakes, as this is where I may just come up with something new for the 2012 list, but alas, it wasn't to be today. I watched the pair of COOTS, and saw the CORMORANT in its favourite tree again, three MALLARDS were on the water, and 4 more dropped in whilst I was there, two MOORHEN and a GREY HERON made up the water birds seen. Only the briefest of walks around the Scrubby Woods turned up a flock of LONG TAILED TITS, about 8 birds in all, with the usual hangers on of NUTHATCH, TREECREEPER, and GOLDCREST. That was it for today, just run out of time!!
A couple of hastily snatched photo's from the garden were had, but in some poor light -
