Different Peregrine

After feeling rough yesterday I well and truly overslept this morning so Dave had to drag me kicking and screaming from under the duvet which meant we arrived at the pond later than usual. Quick chat with Bob and Keith then as they toddled off to toft we ambled to rainbow corner. The first winter male Red-crested Pochard was in rainbow corner while overhead 80 Lapwing circled for some time till the large juvenile Peregrine that was patrolling the fields behind rainbow cleared off. A real chunky monkey. Six Golden Plover went over east. Only other birds of note were 7 Goosander, 15 Goldeneye, 5 Pochard, Goldcrest, Grey Wagtail, 8 Tree Sparrow, 50 Stock Dove and hundreds of corvids, Wood Pigeon, Fieldfare and Redwing on the west side of reservoir. Just 2 Bullfinch on Napton on the Hill and 2 Sparrowhawk between Gibraltar bridge and Broadwell.
