Friday 10 February - LITTLE GULL

The overnight snow seems to have caused further movement.

I have just watched three Goosander fly over the house!

Startops had redhead Smew still and Snow bunting flew in from Marsworth Res direction and landed briefly, but I couldn’t find it when walking back to the car and it is fairly easy to spot on the snow. An adult LITTLE GULL took off and flew east from Startops over Marsworth and along the canal – possibly to College Lake. A Bittern was stood in the stream on Marsworth Res.

On Wilstone the Water Pipit was about and the Brent Goose was also still in the usual field.
