Cotswold Water Park

Today saw us in the Cotswold Water Park for a half day visit.

At our first stop we found several Goosander out on the water along with a group of Red Crested Pochard and a couple of Great Crested Grebes.

Before we moved off we had an all to brief view of a Kingfisher as it flew across the water.

Searching the tree tops we found 4 Siskin feeding on the Alder cones along with Blue tit,Great tit and a single Coal tit.

Heading towards our second lake through a tree lined area Goldcrest, Treecreeper and Chiffchaff were all seen along with a Great spotted Woodpecker.

Out on the lake several female Goldeneye could be seen diving under the surface with both Pochard and Tufted ducks were seen here.

On our return journey we saw a good selection of birds Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Redwing, Fieldfare, Grey Heron, Reed Bunting, Song Thrush, Buzzard, Kestrel and a lovely single Dunnock just sat in the tree above us.

Later in the day a pair of Pintail were seen along with both male and female Peregrines chasing each other around the sky.

Only half a day but some nice birds Sen.DT
