A walk around half of Draycote water about 2 miles. It was cold and misty /Foggy and many times you could not see the other side, so not really a good day for photographs. So on the emergency settings on the camera as I call them and off I go. Goosander were the first things I saw about 4 Drakes and the same females.
So apologies for the quality of the shots but they are better than nothing lol !!
Nearby were a few small groups of Goldeneye looking splendant.
A further walk along the Dam and very distant views of a Long-Tailed Duck but pretty close to shore this superb Great Northern Diver.
Further along the Dam brought a Grey Wagtail about 20 Pied Wagtails and a lovely Wren hopping in and out of the rocks in search of insects.
Then a long walk to the other side of the Reservoir hoping to see a Red Breasted merganser ( Same family as the Goosander but a lot smaller and not seen anywhere near as often ) It didn’t let me down it seemed to be sat there waiting for me lol !!
There in the middle of around 20 Great Crested Grebes.
