Red crested Pochards at Shustoke Res.

Tuesday 4th November 2014
Popped in to Shustoke Reservoir this morning. Almost all the wildfowl were at the eastern end so a bit of a stroll was called for. The five Red crested Pochards, 4 males and 1 female, found earlier by Pete Forbes, were keeping themselves to themselves and generally staying together as a group. Apart from a Kingfisher and the usual Coots and Ducks the place was quiet and a search of the bushes and Sycamores only produced a single Siskin and again the usual Tits and Finches.
