There didn’t seem much variety in the park today - maybe the weather is just too mild to entice species such as Redwing and Siskin - but there was a Heron at Shornden Res and a Grey Wagtail at Buck’s Hole.

Highlights at Castle Water today included four Smew (one male) and four ScaupÂ visible from the path along the northern end of the pit. Also present here small numbers of Shoveler, Gadwall. Pochard and Tufted Duck, as well as a leucistic (very pale) Black-headed Gull. On the Beach Reserve, an Eider was present at the river mouth late morning, while small groups of Corn Bunting and two Rock Pipit were visble from Lime Kiln Cottage, the former on Harbour Farm and the latter on the saltmarsh.
