12.11.17. Birdlog.

The numbers of ducks were typically good with some of the usual suspects present, Common Teal, Wigeon,Mallard, Tufted Duck, Gadwall, Pintail and Common Shelduck all available. Along the hedges were Fieldfare and Redwing.

I called in to watch the Starling roost this afternoon at No.6 sludge tank. There were more Starling arriving than yesterday with no murmurations to boast about as the birds came in low over the reed bed and went straight in to roost site. A Sparrowhawk shot in and out of the roost without any obvious commotion from the hoards within. I didn’t notice if it made a kill but it couldn’t have failed.
