Rain, Rain Rain – Ah, a little repsite this morning. Very few good birds about locally (apart from the many Waxwings) and even less at Staunton Harold Reservoir. The Yellow-legged Gulls seem to have moved off, as does the Caspian Gull. Last date I had a Yellow-legged was last Tuesday 18th December. A Green Woodpecker Yaffled, around 80 Tufted Duck, 70 Mallard and 10 Teal, 1 fly over Wigeon . Very few passerines!!! Where are all the Yellowhammers?
Decided to photograph some of the local Mallard.
