Just a little Birding

With a lot to fit in this afternoon there wasn’t going to be much time for birds so it was a case of fit it in when ever.  I started with a visit to M&S and Homebase at the Orbital. A quick check of the trees but no sign of Waxwings. Then it was off to a Blood Donor session in Covingham. After that I stopped off at Liden Lagoon for a few minutes. A fair few birds around with three each of  Cormorant and Herring Gull plus single Heron, Goosander and Tufted Duck being the best. A very brief look-in at Coate gave me ten Goosander, three Great-crested Grebe, Great-spotted Woodpecker and two Coal Tits. Then it was a quarter of an hour at home before a visit to the garage for a small job on the car and then to Wroughton to collect my daughter after a school trip. I managed a drive round by Barbury Castle on the way with  Kestrel, Buzzard, Mistle Thrush and several Blackbirds seen.
