Weekday birds

I had the pleasure of having two teeth extracted this morning and had decided to have the afternoon off of work. I decided to do a bit of birding on the way home. Starting at the old Moredon Canal I was hoping for a wintering Chiff-Chaff or Blackcap. No such luck, it was pretty quiet here with only a couple of Bullfinch and a Goldcrest  worth noting. Next stop was Coate Water to have a look for the Dunlin. Bird was found almost immediately, asleep on the dam near the car park I wasn’t feeling great so headed home for a sit down. I needed to pop out to Wroughton so stopped for a look at the reservoir. Six Little Grebe were the highlight here along with thirty-seven Tufted Duck and nine Gadwall. I see from today’s sightings that two Smew were seen at Coate today. Another great bird on the list.
