A visit after 6th form was very rewarding, not for rare species, but sheer numbers!
An outstanding flock of 66 POCHARD! was on the main pool, The highest specific count ive ever had here!
Also of note was a flock of 11 GOOSANDER, which as usual seemed to be over the other side of the pool wherever you went, a single Teal was heard calling and 3 Tufted duck were on the lake.
A male KINGFISHER shown superbly well on the river, although behind trees.

Not a bad haul of birds Craig. 66 Pochard would be a substantial count at many a midlands location

It was quite a big count, and one that possibly rivals counts ive had elsewhere, certainly beating a few 'better' worcestershire sites!
To have a flock that big at an urban location is pritty mindblowing!
