Shardeloes Lake on Saturday

My first visit in a while but 56 NORTHERN POCHARD on the lake was a surprise - the largest number I have seen this early in the autumn. Other duck present included a single TEAL, 26 GADWALL and 8 Tufted Duck, whilst the 3 Mute Swans, 2 Great Crested Grebes, 13 Little Grebes and 97 Coot were also noted. Otherwise, 40 Barn Swallows, 6 House Martins, Wren, 2 Common Chiffchaff, Jay, 3 Red Kite and an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull were seen.
