Fishers Green

Today headed down to Fishers Green with Brian E. We first paided a visit to the Bittern Hide but not much around apart from a lovely pair of Little Grebes with the high force wind around not surprising. So decided to walk around the main site. Within 200 yards a lovely flock of Long-tailed Tits and Siskins flying around feeder in the Alders trees.

Walked down to the Grebe Hide with a few Great Crested Grebes around but not much on this side of the lake apart from beautiful sound of siskins in the trees enough to make anyone smile and a  lovely treecreeper climbing up a tree in the wooded area.

Headed along to the Grand Weir Hide where along the walk saw about 30 Fieldfares flying off calling as there went and from the hide we found 3 Pied Wagtail and a lone Meadow Pipit and then from the hide a stunning lot of wigeon about 50 - 60 birds along with some teal showing off their beatiful colours.

Headed back to Bittern hide and saw that the seed feeder had been topped up so alot more activity around the feeder just the usual suspects but lovely just to watch. Spotted on the main lake that one of the Cormorant looked very white so had a closer look and saw it was one of the continental race sinensis. While scanning the reeds for anything lurking saw a Water Rail dart across at least twice which was a pleasing sight.

After a while decided not btterns were going to show so walked around the back view of Seventy Acres Lake and glad we need because found the big flock of Greylag Geese which in with them was a stunning Pink-footed Geese a good end to a lovely day.
