Bird Sightings 23/1/2019

I had a couple of hours spare at lunchtime today so managed to fit a walk round the reserve and counted the species I saw/heard;

mute swan, little grebe, mallard, teal, grey heron, moorhen, cormorant, black headed gull, pink footed goose, Canada goose, GS woodpecker, nuthatch, treecreeper, LT tit, blue tit, great tit, coal tit, robin, dunnock, wren, blackbird, goldfinch, chaffinch, bullfinch, C. crow, jay, woodpigeon and reed bunting.

Nothing too unusual but a good selection.

We've recently spent a few volunteer Thursdays servicing the nest boxes and I was pleasantly surprised how many of these were being examined by pairs of birds already. Hopefully we can have a good breeding season this year.
