1 Kingfisher - heard only
1 Little Grebe
4 Great Crested Grebe - 2 virtually in summer plumage
1 Shoveler - male
Numerous Teal and Gadwall

Sunday 27.11.22
0900-1230hrs...

Mostly the same as Nick,

Although we did have a Woodcock flying over the main pond shortly after 10, possibly flushed by 2 dogs that shouldnt have been where they were, lost to view, but appeared to come down around the Cow field...

Little Egret appeared from over the locks and came down at the side of the Great Bear Warehouse where all the lapwings seem to appear from normally..
