Red Crested Pochard
been out a few times over Christmas to east park (its only round the corner), and have been pleasantly suprised by the quality and variety of the birds.
The highlights have been; a very pale looking chiffchaff,waxwing,pintail,goldeneye,lesser redpoll,'European' treecreeper,redshank,grey heron,teal and up to 24 goosander.
Along with at least another 30 common species, it is certainly worth a visit during the winter monthsThe thing that suprised me the most was the amount of change over the 2 week period.
My money is on a rare turningup before the winter is out.
