St Austell Sewage Works and the Manoa Valley.

Report. T.R.Moore. 9th December 2010.

Visited the Manoa Valley at 1400hrs.

1x Dipper, 6x Grey Wagtails, 1x Pied Wagtail, 3x Robins, 2x Dunnocks, 2 x Long-tailed Tit, 2x Blue Tit, 1x Buzzard, 1x Wren, 2x Goldcrests and probably double figure Chiffchaff. Also seen were Wood Pigeons, Corvids and Gulls.

The main quarry on the visit list was the Dipper who obliged once again.
Grey Wagtails were split between the Sewage car park (3) and the other (3) on the river.
The Buzzard was causing havoc with the small birds within the works area. As much as I tried I could not get a good photograph....distance too far , or, too much foliage between us.
Again the Chiffchaff were far too active in the trees to get a worthwhile photograph.
The Dipper I managed to get reasonably close to... also the Wagtails produced something that probably will see the light of day on a quiet week.
