Dunstable sewage works Sunday 3rd March 2013 started cold, frosty and misty and ended up with lovely sunshine late on.
Thought this month I would make a list of the birds I spotted today during the 3 1/2 hours on site.
On view Kingfisher, Shelduck, Mallard, Teal, Shoveler, Tufted Duck, Mallard, Wigeon, Pochard, Canada Goose, Grey Heron, Little Egret, Green Sandpiper, Snipe, Black Headed Gull, Great, Blue and Long Tailed Tits, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, a pair of Reed Bunting, Wren, Robin, Blackbird, Song Thrush, Green & Great Spotted Woodpecker, Magpie, Crow, Wood Pigeon, Buzzard, Sparrowhawk, Coot, Moorhen.
As you can see from the pictures the Grey Heron bit off more than he could chew?
Sat in the hide for ages, I heard the Water Rail but it never showed today!
