Par Report

Report. R.Lane. 1st February 2011

A quick visit to Par this afternoon gave a list quite similar to yesterday's, except Shoveler ! On the Pool (75% iced over) were: 5 x Bar-headed Geese (one left alone); 9+ Shoveler, incl.2 males (max. this winter?); 2 x Gadwall and 1 x Pintail hybrid. Plus sundry Teal and Snipe, (and doubtless a Bittern or 2!)
On Par Bay were 16+, G.C.Grebes; 5 x Eider Duck (fems), LBBGs of all ages, Comm.Gulls and 40+, Curlew flew west toward harbour roost, in two flocks (my highest count this winter).

Thank you for the report Roger.
I am a little surprised the Pool is still frozen to that extent.
