Gayhurst and Quarryhall

 A lunchtime wander was not too productive.
Again Fishing Pit was very quiet, I think mainly due to a guy fishing on the south shore ( It's called fishing pit, so why should I be surprised when there's someone fishing on it ?! ) Drakey Wigeon was still there looking very at home sitting on the old Grebe's nest.
 Spinney Pit had  Little Egret and Grebe, a couple of Shoveler and 5 Teal, the 5 young swans but unfortunately only one Great crested Grebe youngster.
 Two more Little Egrets were on Reedy Pit.
I met up with Gen at Motorway Pit and we scanned through the masses of Mute Swans, Greylags, Canadas, Mallards and Lapwings to find a few Gadwall, Teal, Shoveler and the young Polish Swan.
 Two Buzzards flew over and a couple of Kingfishers were heard but not seen.

 We then walked up to Quarryhall  where the ' highlights' were a Kestrel, a Red-legged Partridge and a Pheasant.
