24th February 2012
Weather:- started off lovely and sunny, but soon went overcast and windy
Spent longer around the reserve today and went up to Netherton hill. Very quiet, with very little activity. Did however, hear the first chiffchaff of the year. Four buzzards over the hill, most I've seen before are three, also kestrel and sparrowhawk put in an appearence.
Back at the reservoir the cormorant, great-crested grebe and tufted duck as left, but now have 7 canadian geese.
Back in the wood all the usual suspects were there, with goldcrest putting in his usual appearence, but no sign of the treecreeper or nuthaches.
