Cold Edge Dams

                                                    First Greylags of the year

                                               1 m Tufted
                                      1 f Goldeneye in the distance

Cold Edge Dams  1445 - 1600hrs.  Cold NW>6 bright.

A bit blustery to say the least around the dams but dry and bright.
Haigh Cote dam was deserted with birds taking shelter near to the north banking of Leadbeater Dam whilst the Canadas skulked behind the island.
Other than Mallards the only ducks present were 1 male Tufted and 1 female Goldeneye whilst 5 Red Grouse were present on the moor. A small flock of 6 Linnet came in to the pines to roost at last light.
Nine Greylags were in the field at the opposite side of the track.

Nice shots there Bri. Nice one with the Linnets as well. We seem to be getting a few more mid-winter records than we have done over the years.

You were't tempted down for the Northern Long-tailed Tits then. They have been seen again this afternoon but we went down later and missed them this time round.
1 Common Buzzard over as well.
