Took a walk around Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve
today and was surprised how busy it was, lots of walkers,
joggers and Anglers on a frosty morning, lots of frost still
on the canal path as I arrived, Grey Heron flew over the Ski lake.
Had a look on the Lagoon first and heard a Warbler and a
Snipe but couldn't locate them among all the reeds, 3 Mallard
were up by the bridge and a Nuthatch was at the viewing area
along with the regulars but it didn't stay long but then the lovely
LTT'S turned up 6 of them darting about all over the place, I then
took a walk up to the meadow and was chuffed to see 8 Siskin high
up in the trees mixed with Goldfinch, 2 Dunnock and 2 Wren were
up there as well, nothing seen up by the weir apart from 6 Mallard
and a few uni'd's, decided to walk along the canal back to my car and
got a nice surprise with a Kingfisher on a branch which was a nice
finish to the day, 6 Canada's were resting on the banking over the river.
I looked out for the Pink Footed Geese that had been reported on the
way home but nothing seen or heard.
