Danger - Deep Water

No kidding ...

Visited Cullaloe at lunchtime. Water, water, everywhere! Filter beds full to bursting, car park under water, paths under water. Also noticed that we have lost another crown from the small group of pines that stands at the south end of the water. It's noticeably brighter but it reminded me of the birds I've seen in that treetop - Goldfinch, Wren, usually the first Chiffchaff of the year will put in an appearance on it. Not any more! Now it's dropped into Long-tailed Tit country.

Some fine looking wildfowl on the reserve, albeit not in huge numbers - Wigeon, Teal and Tufties.

Wigeon in resplendent form

Managed to extend the list by a couple of species. Nothing spectacular but both nice to get on the board - Coal Tit in song and a flock of c.120 Greylags in the adjacent field. I'll take it - happy to be finally able to go outside.

+Coal Tit +Greylag => 36, 36% of target
