Eyebrook Reservoir, March

As often happens, the March count was relatively quiet. Most of the dabbling ducks, especially Teal, have moved on.

There was an increase in migrant Aythya ducks, notably Pochard, and Shelducks as they return to breed.

We had very good views of a Mink by the bridge; this is the second we have seen recently, which suggests that the population may again be growing.

The temperature was about three degrees cooler than yesterday, in overcast conditions, so I was slightly surprised when a Peacock butterfly flew past (my third species this weekend).
