Cotswold Water Park

Sunday 23rd December 2007

A frosty and very foggy day with fog remaining around the vale, and at the Cotswold Water Park where I took Andy and mark. The visibility was abysmal, and at pit 46 tantalising glimpses of one particular bird suggested Red-necked Grebe but conditions just didn't allow us to be certain. On pit 46 we did see a red-head Smew, a drake Goosander and five Goldeneyes in the murk. On the way back at Driffield, nine Grey Partrigdes were hunkered down in a field, the most I have seen together in a few years, a female Stonechat was nearby and two Tree Sparrows were at Harnhill.
