Just as I arrived at......

........Brake Mill Pool the rain started! The temperature has hardly risen today, roll on Spring!
On the water were the usual suspects along with a pleasing sight of  Little Grebe x1, 5 male and 4 Tufted Ducks, no doubt they will be off to pastures new by the time I next visit. A lone Drake Goosander bathed at the far end of the pool. Buzzards x 2 and 5+ Pied Wagtails were in a sheep field alongside the railway track.


  1. Nice one re the Goosander Pam, I've not seen 1 yet this year as they weren't present in their "usual" local winter spot!

  2. Still time for you to see a Goosander Ruth! No doubt the Laughing Gull you saw will more than make up for them¬!
