Bank Top Country Park

Moorhens
My first Coot of the year
Plenty small gulls
Frozen reed beds, awaiting a Bittern

Went across to the east of the area hoping for Water Rail or even Bittern but not to be. All the water was frozen solid and the reed beds deserted apart from Coot and Moorhen. An active flock of 17 Siskin were flying around the Alders and several Chaffinch and Greenfinch were in the trees. Called at Wibsey park to try get some gull photos, some of which I,ll put on later. Most of the lake there was frozen but the place was alive with Coot which you virtually had to walk around, very tame Moorhens, Canadas, 1 hybrid Barnacle, and several small gulls. A tree just inside the park gates held 32 Collared Doves.
