Some of the birds gathered at the eastern end of the Lake
Most of the birds on the Lake were gathered at the eastern end because the rest of the Lake was covered in ice. Birds of particular note were 1 Mute Swan, 8 Canada Geese, 19 Pochard, and 2 male Tufted Ducks. The gull flock produced at least 85 Black-headed Gulls, 22 Common Gulls, and 1 adult Herring Gull.
Coots walking on the lake
3 Grey Herons and 2 Kingfishers were seen along the River Len, and the Little Egret and a Grey Wagtail was by the pond, opposite the waterfall.
The carriage bridge over the River Len
(the first bridge from the Downswood entrance, and is the best spot to look for Kingfishers)
Also noted was a dog Fox, which was seen briefly as it ran through the hedge at the top of the track by the Weir.
