Pugneys CP

A few hours to spare after work, so decided on a quick tour of Pugneys CP, main lake and nature reserve lake only. Out on the main lake, at the West side near the jetty, were Black Headed, Common, Lesser Black backed and Herring Gulls of various ages, Mallards, Tufted Duck, Shoveler, Pochard, Great Cresyed Grebs and Cormorants.

Waled around then towards the Nature Reserve seeing a few Pied Wagtails on route but very little else, from the nature reserve hide were a very good number of Cormorants, Mute Swans, Grey Herons, Coots, Stock Doves and Woodpigeon.

Around at the next hide which overlooks the east side of the main lake were 3 female Goldeneye, more Cormorants, a Grey Heron which eventually flew to the hide area and located in the nearby reeds, a Water Rail was heard and unfortunately not seen.

Around the far side of the lake as I was making my way around to the car park over 70 Wigeon had amassed on the grass bank, it had now got around to coffee and cake time

No Photos today , just solely enjoying the birding time
