Worsbrough 27/12/16 (C.R.Dixon & G.Haywood)

A rather cold day, but thankful that the wind had dropped!

At least 9 GCGrebe were on the reservoir, with c.20 Siskin, 13 Bullfinch  and 2 Water Rail (including a very confiding individual) around the Country Park.

A Dipper was seen again on Warren Dike, Old Park Wood. On the ponds at Rockley were 7 Wigeon, 1m Teal and a Little Grebe. A decent record for the valley were 2 Raven flying west over Stainborough at 11:54.

A check along the river Dove later in the afternoon only produced a male Dipper, with no sign of the second bird.
