Down at the Quarry

A trip down to Gayhurst Quarry tonight in the drizzle.
On the Fishing Pit, still masses of Wigeon, in excess of 250, a few Tufteds, Mallard, 4 drake Shoveler, a pair of Teal and a female Goosander. While watching these 3 Chiffchaff flitted about in the trees overhead.
In the fields behind the Pit the monster Mute Swan flock again contained the one Black individual.
On Motorway Pit, another couple of hundred Wigeon,more Tufteds, several Pochard, 3 Little Grebe, 2 Oystercatchers, a Snipe and a Little Egret.
