Bourton Pits

Tuesday 1st January 2008
Firstly, Happy New Year and good birding for 2008 to all! Let's wish for lot's of Gloucestershire rarities.
On an overcast start to the New Year, but with no wind it felt relatively mild. One of the first ticks of 2008 was a Raven over Quedgeley. A family walk from Bourton-on-the-Water around the pits produced seven Little Grebes, a Marsh Tit, a Gadwall, a Kestrel, a Cormorant, a Great Spotted Woodpecker, three Great Crested Grebes, five Pied Wagtails plus Coot, Moorhen, Tufted Duck, Mallard, Long-tailed Tit and the resident Black Swan - not tickable but photogenic nonetheless.
