Goosander numbers building

Yesterday’s group of Red-crested Pochard at Draycote Water did not remain but the female Pintail did and there was an overnight increase in Goosander numbers with 6 female & 2 male present. Other sightings included a Little Egret by the inlet, Rock Pipit on farborough spit relocated to the end of toft bank, male Blackcap near the hide, Peregrine hunting over grandborough valley plus 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker, 2 Raven, 6 Goldeneye, 6 Gadwall, 2 Pochard and a Kingfisher. Plenty of Meadow Pipits but the Wood Pigeon passage of 300+ birds on our arrival soon fizzled out by mid-morning.
