This Grey Heron spent 20 minutes on my neighbours roof this morning looking for Goldfish once the school run started.
Draycote Water was dull and grey with low cloud and a cool south east wind.
A male Pintail was the only new arrival this morning while the 2 female Common Scoters remain distant off draycote bank but no sign of any Red-crested Pochard.
A wildfowl count produced 18 Goldeneye, 38 Teal, 16 Pochard, 21 Wigeon, female Goosander (Bob found 2 others), 13 Gadwall, 200 Tufted Duck, 2 female Shoveler and 187 Canada Geese.
Only other birds of note were adult Yellow-legged Gull, Goldcrest, 2 Green Woodpecker, 14 Long-tailed Tit, a few Redwing, Kingfisher and Grey Wagtail while Bob had 2 Dunlin.
