Not really much going on at the moment so there hasn't been a great deal to write about. Few bits about on the reserve in the last week although the 3 red-crested pochards and drake mandarin are surely of 'unknown origin'. The quality has been left to an adult Bewick's swan that has been feeding on a sugarbeet field at the end of the carpark and roosting on the fresh marsh at night.
Loads of finches in the garden at the moment. At least 30 chaffinch and greenfinch at the weekend and there are still 4 lesser redpoll and 3 siskin today.
