Today was cold but beautifully sunny.  As we walked down Lordship Lane, we saw lots of Fieldfare, Chaffinch and European Goldfinch.  Walking up the slope to the tank we saw 6  pairs of Eurasian Teal and 4  pairs of Northern Shoveller on the ‘splashing pool’ next to the ‘phalarope pool’. The pool had one Northern Pintail, a couple of Black-tailed Godwit and several Northern Lapwing.

A quick after work visit to Kinsey’s/Marsh Lanes, Ince. Two Western Cattle Egret, 8 Little Egret close to the pig farm. Also nearby were Mallard, Eurasian Teal, Gadwall, Northern Shoveler, Eurasian Coot, Common Moorhen and a pair of Mute Swan at Goldfinch Meadows LNR. Three Little Egret went to roost in the trees near to the screen pond. There were 3 egrets still foraging in the dark then flew to join the others in their roost .
