Out and about

After a forced stayin due to an injury manged to get out so headed to Wilstone Reservoir still at very lovel levels seems to have hardly rained around here but lot of the winter ducks now in with good numbers of Pochard, Mallard and Tufted duck with 1 pair of Red-crested Pochard in with them. Then walked around to there hide where in the woods lot of Fieldfare and a few Redwings, then at the hide saw 4 Bewick Swans showing well nice to see this uncommon herts visitor. Also out from here were Lapwing, Black-headed  and Herring gull and 1 Little Egret.

Around the other side of the reservoir was a big flock of Linnet at least 200 strong and in the fist field a big flock of Greylag Geese before further round a solo Brent Goose on its own.
