December 11, 2015

Greylake today 09-12-2015 Dawn was breaking as I arrived at the reserve,making my way towards the hide sizable flocks of Starlings passed low over head all heading west.
Mid morning to the surprise and delight of all present in the hide we were privileged by the arrival of a family of Bewick`s Swans two adults and a juvenile, the birds appeared rather nervous and left a quarter of an hour later, Ten Black-tailed-Godwits also made a brief appearance,  Kingfisher made several dives from a hovering position.The rest of the morning it was business as usual.
