Eyebrook Reservoir, January

Canada Geese, EBR

Canada Geese, EBR

Despite unusual levels of disturbance which left us with little hope of seeing either Otter or Bittern, we completed this morning’s count in cold, calm weather conditions.

There were lots of hungry birds, and a few Grey Squirrels, on the feeders at Stoke Dry.

Notable sightings included the two long-staying Pink-footed Geese, 708 Teal, and 59 Goldeneye.

Other diving ducks were few in number: not a single Pochard, nor any Smew which though recently an Eyebrook speciality is becoming increasingly scarce.
