Out again

The weather was quite pleasant when I came out of work today so I decided to have a walk at Coate on the way home. The main lake was fairly quiet with ten Goosander and twenty-four Pochard seen. A quick scan for the Bittern was made but it was not showing. Maybe it has finally moved on. More activity on the other lake with both Heron and Cormorant very active. A drake Pintail was the highlight of the visit being a fairly rare visitor here. Another 15 Goosander, a pair of Shelduck  a dozen or so Shoveler, the same of Gadwall and plenty of Teal. A handful of Song Thrushes were singing and a few Redwing and Fieldfare were moving around. One Snipe flew up from a soggy patch on a field margin and apart from plenty of Rooks going to roost, nothing else was seen.
