11.12.17. Birdlog.

I took a walk along the top road (as I call it) from 14.30 – 15.15 hrs. A Common Buzzed flushed out numerous Common Snipe which were very vocal with a count of 26 in three separately flying groups and in the air together. A mixed flock of Shoveler, Pintail, Common Teal on No.6 tank and it was awesome to watch how they sat in the (almost) frozen water keeping it from totally freezing over by constantly spinning in the water. A big flock of mixed finches over the reed beds. A mixed flock of Golden Plover, Curlew and Lapwing on No.5 turbine field.
