BTO Winter WeBS survey.

Winter WeBS survey.

I did my final BTO Winter WeBS survey at The Cotswold Water Park at the weekend.

Wildfowl numbers were down on the two previous counts which would have been expected given all the fine weather over the last week.
A nice count of 65 Wigeon feeding on the grass at the edge of one of the larger lakes proved to be the highest count.

There are still as few Goosander and Goldeneye about but numbers have dropped compared to last months count.

A great find was a Red-breasted Merganser (red head) feeding on small fish at the edge of the lake.
A good sign that spring is in the air with lots on Song Thursh calling from the tree tops. DT.
