In an effort to avoid the showers I stayed close to the car this lunch time.
First stop Central Milton Keynes (opposite Argos) to see how the development is coming along. Still some birds with 5 Linnet flying around, a Crow, a few Black-headed and Common Gull's on the sandy wet section alongside the H6 (this must surely hold a Snipe or two?).
Then onto South Willen, like Linford yesterday this held masses of wildfowl. All the usual ducks, with 2 Goosander and 15 plus Goldeneye the best spots. (Surely something rarer must be amongst these two sights?) But I soon left as the heavens opened.
Then onto Lloyd's Court, Central Milton Keynes, to see if yesterday's Waxwings were still around. I'd also received a text of Mick Shepard who advised 50+ were still around some 20 minutes earlier. All I could see were a small flock of Starlings and the odd Redwing added in. The berries along the side of the Library have already been stripped.
Rob then text as I leaving Lloyd's Court to advise the Bearded Tits were not showing at Walton Balancing Lake but a Bittern flew in and landed in the reeds!
Looking forward to the photo's on your blog Rob :-)
