ISS and the normal goodies at the pond

Watched the Space Station go over at 5:52am as the fog started to develop but luckily it did not linger as long as forecasted and treated to a bright cold but sunny morning for our visit to the pond.
Great Northern Diver, Long-tailed Duck and Smew were off Farborough Bank/Spit and the Red-breasted Merganser was seen distantly towards the outlet. At least 7 female and 2 male Goosander present along with 10 Gadwall 40 Teal, Shoveler, 3 Pochard, 80 Wigeon, Chiffchaff, Raven and 12 Golden Plover over

Forgot to mention that there were 2 Mottled Umbers and a Winter Moth in the garden Trap over the weekend.
