Newmillerdam - 20 January 2017

A pair of goldeneye were on the lake today, as well as two teal. Both new records for the year.

Black-headed gull (120), little grebe (1), mute swan (6), teal (2), whooper swan (1), Canada goose (35), coot (26), goldeneye (2), goosander (6 - 3m/3f), kingfisher (1), moorhen (9), siskin (5), tufted duck (35).

The whooper swan was ringed last Sunday and interestingly of the five cygnets with the female adult, only four are hers, the other W42199/299Y was ringed in August at Wombwell Canal.
