Pochards at PBP

No sign of the Bittern at 0930 hrs.
The only things worth recording at the PBP:
Pochards x4, Snipe, Shoveler x2, Cormorants x2 and Buzzard over.

Redwings x4 were at the entrance close to the Indian Restaurant also a female Bullfinch in the trees by the Hut.

On the way to Menabilly I saw Buzzard x2.
The Barton car park had a chain across and I wonder If anyone knows why.

A very brief visit to the Manoa Valley.
A farmer was ploughing the field and the Gulls were following close behind keeping him company. Also interested in the proceeding were a couple of Buzzards who kept sending the gulls up and then flying back to perch in the trees.
Meadow Pipits, Dunnocks and Pied Wagtails were also in the field helping themselves to the freebies that had been churned up.


  1. Menabilly car-park is closed many weekdays in winter, particularly when wet and muddy, in order to reduce erosion. Usually open on Sunday's for weekenders. MAY stay closed on weekdays until Sping 'to let grass grow'. But it all depends on decision of farmer I guess.
