Queens Award for Voluntary Service


The weather wasn’t exactly kind to us but still, a good sized group of determined and soggy birdwatchers gathered for a walk around the reserve and adjacent area last Saturday morning.

Most of the local birds were keeping a rather low profile but we did see the following:

Mallard, Teal, Goosander, Cormorant, Grey heron, Kestrel, Moorhen, Common snipe, Black-headed gull, Common gull, Herring gull, Collared dove, Woodpigeon, Meadow pipit, Pied wagtail, Wren, Dunnock, Robin, Song thrush, Mistle thrush, Blackbird, Blue tit, Magpie, Jackdaw, Carrion crow, Starling, House sparrow, Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Greenfinch.
