A New Start

A new year starts and so do the lists once again, so to get the birds of to a start I decided on a trip down to Sands Lane to see the now long staying Great Northern Diver and also to get the year off to a good start. It was still present and once again out in the middle of the lake so not a very good photo opportunity, along with the diver were Great Crested Grebes, Mallards, Black headed Gulls, Common Gulls, Cormorants, Canada and Greylag Geese a flock of Goldfinch (charming), a Grey Heron stuck in one corner standing waiting, a male Goosander on the nearby river.

A journey then up to Ingbirchworth res to see if the swans were still about but alas not Black headed Gull, Common Gull, Tufted Duck, Mallard and Little Grebe were the only things that graced the water
