A Brisk Walk

With limited time available this morning i took the dog for a walk around Coate Water. The target was one hour to drive to Coate, walk around the main lake and then home again. In the end it took an hour and five, still pretty good. I had been hoping for some hirundines but none were seen. A count of forty-six Tufted Ducks was good and there were also a fair few Coot still. Other birds on the water were Gadwall, Mallard, GC Grebe, Canada Geese, Mute Swans and a single Cormorant. Two Song Thrushes and a single Starling were on the pitch and putt course. Nine Chiffchaffs were heard on the walk along with three Great Spotted Woodpeckers, one Green Woodpecker and a Marsh Tit.
