Report from Roger Lane. (22nd Dec 2009)

"Visited Par briefly this afternoon,22ndDec'09, the Pool was still 80% ice. The 3 Shovelor had apparently gone, but there were 5+ Snipe; 5+ Teal and 1 x GADWALL (male), only rarely showed it's white speculum. All birds (incl. yesterday's Shovelor) were keeping close to the island where the open water is.
Par Bay, although calm, was rather quiet, to say the least ! Just 6 of the 9 GCGrebes and 1 x GND waiting to enter the inner harbour as the tide rose. Presumably 1 of the 2 Mark saw. It was a whole 6 degsC at Par today !"

Thanks for the report Roger.
Snipe and Gadwall are two new ones to the pool. I must try to get there tomorrow to see them.
