CWP Monthly Walk for December

Another day of rain for our 3rd winter tour, with the weather turning a bit colder we noticed that there are a lot more ducks around now with good numbers of Wigeon, Teal, and Shoveler all seen.

A few Lapwing flew over and a Kestrel patrolled the open ground.

Several groups of small birds could be seen feeding on the Rosebay willowherb plants which turned out to be mostly Goldfinches but we did find 3 Redpoll mixed in with them.

A few Redwing and Fieldfare flew over and a single Mistle Thrush landed in a near by tree.

All in all another pleasant couple of hours out with the wildlife.

The next walk is on Saturday 6th January  starting at 9am at the Waterhay car park at the Cotswold Water Park. Its only £10 per person.
