So I wasn't expecting much and that was what I got! Well after Mull what can you expect! Started off with a couple of nice Nuthatches though:
The pool had the usual supects, Canada Geese, Coot & Mallard, unusually no Moorhen about that I could see.
Through the NR heard plenty of Chiffchaff, had a brief glimpse of Willow Warbler, then Wren (3) Great Tit, Blue Tit, Robin, Blackbird, Greenfinch and Goldfinch.
As I was heading back a GS Woodpecker flew over and back towards Corngreaves Hall, so as I had a bit of time I looped back around and found him! (Of course he stayed in the shade and wouldn't let me get to close)
I walked home via the canal and picked up a missing Moorhen!!!!!!!
|These Iron Moorhens are to be found all along the canal|
