11th December 2018 – Eastville Park

It was a dull but still morning but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to see the goosanders again in my local park. Today the numbers had risen to five (in fact 7 were reported earlier in the day),

There were also 4 grey herons, 13 cormorants, lots of black-headed gulls, a lesser black-backed gull, a couple of first winter juveniles, a mute swan, a couple of moorhens, a few blackbirds and robins, loads of mallards and the tawny owl but not a single view of a kingfisher (the first blank for a long time).

You can see why they are known as sawbills
