Thursday 21st February 2013
Weather :- cloudy with sunny spells and a chilly wind.
Reservoir :- showing 112 black-headed gulls with a few starting to moult into summer plumage. 22 coots, 11 mallards and 3 tufted ducks, (1 male, 2 female ). Little grebe and great crested grebe, that was seen only yesterday, according to the birdtrack app, seem to have left. 2 coots were gathering nesting material.
Woods :-  Fairly quiet, may be due to more people as it's half term. 16 long-tailed tits, amongst the usual suspects. Buzzard and bullfinch heard.
Found some interesting lichen on some trees.
