Newmillerdam - 10 March 2017

Black-headed gull (134), Canada goose (33), coot (26), goosander (1f), great crested grebe (5), greylag goose (9), mallard (148), moorhen (8), mute swan (7), siskin (2), whooper swan (1).

The siskin were in a mixed flock with goldfinch and long-tailed tits.

A sixth great crested grebe arrived on Monday and was seen again on Tuesday and they appear to have settled into three pairs. There were still two female goosander on Monday, but only one was seen on Tuesday and again today. A single tufted duck was still on site on Tuesday, but wasn't seen today.

Little grebe are proving illusive, though one was seen on Monday, as was a single teal. 26 Redwing were also seen on Monday.
