This bird (QEII Lake) did its best to keep on the wrong side of
the light. Might need a few trips inland next spring to get a decent shot.
Chevington (apart from the dog-walkers) is always worth a visit. 100+ Goldeneye now on the N Pool a smart pair of Pintail and a male Long-tailed Duck the highlights. The sudden cold snap also means the feeders at the N end are attracting more birds. 50+ visited whilst I was there, nothing scarce but the antics of birds at the feeders can keep you entertained for ages.
Also worth a visit. Today the Peregrine sat in the field, a magnificent bird and although there was little else on show it was a treat. Maiden's Hall Lake is still losing water but the Geese are enjoying the grazing around the edges.
So almost ready for 2015 .. even got the microscope out and ready for some new ideas?
