Early morning stroll
2 Gt Crested Grebes seen and although the nest in the middle of the main lodge appears to have been taken over by an old coot, the Grebes could be nesting well hidden in the reeds on the south side of the main lodge. The commorant was absent. 30 Tufted duck on all lodges. Large number of usual.
Two old coots are sitting on nests on seperate lodges.
Walking on the board walks surprised a female Goosander out ofthe reeds on the back lodge and she propelled herself at a fast velocity three feet in front of me into the water. Few wrens seen in reeds.
The Hide was quite but the usual Chaffinchs Greenfincest Blue Great and long tailed tits, bull finches still present.
Heard a woodpecker behind the fishing lodge but this was too far away to identify.
