Willen North Lake

Having limited time this morning, I decided a lap of the North Lake at Willen was probably likely to be most productive.
The place is still packed with waterfowl with large numbers of all the commoner species.
Also present in amongst the masses were 3 Little Grebe, a female Red crested Pochard, male Goosander and a single Shelduck -my first of the year and my 100th species in Britain this year.
From the hide there were a couple of hundred Lapwing, a Redshank and a Snipe. on the East side a smart Grey Wagtail trotted around on the ice.

    Thanks for these updates Rob.
