Recent Sightings

The main pool hosted a cracking drake Pintail on Saturday and Sunday accompanied by the now resident three Scaup. The Water Pipit put in another appearance today and there were 7+ Red-throated Divers feeding in a group offshore. No sign of the Ring Ouzel yesterday or today despite extensive searching. Steve Sargeant saw it perched on top of some bare twigs amongst the gorse, about 50m in from the road entrance on the left (west). It was about 30m away from the footpath and he watched it for about two minutes and then it dropped down out of view. Needle in a haystack springs to mind! Thanks to the following for their sightings this weekend: M.Curtis, D.Eva, J.Chapple, A,George and me ;-)
