Other birds i picked up were: Kingfisher, 3x Goldcrests, 3x Siskins, 21x Fieldfare , Redwing,3x Mistle Thrushes ,calling Reed Bunting and Greater Spotted Woodpecker. Of note 240x Greylag Geese were on the Woods end marsh . A very rewarding hours birding!
Lunch time today i got a call from James that there was a Gooseander down at the Patch. I was only 5 minutes away so i nipped down and James still being there pointed it out.It was minding its own business and just sitting on the water .As i watched it through the Scope for a nice close up view it took off- i literally got there in the nick of time !
A big thanks to James for the heads up,even though im sure its still about but just in case its not im glad i caught up with it while i did.
