Plenty of Black Headed Gulls around, although there numbers were far less on Sunday. Other species on the lake included Teal, Goosander, single Great Crested Grebe, Oystercatcher, Shelduck, Tufted duck, Cormorant, Snipe, Lapwing, Greylag, Canada, and Coot. A Goldcrest and Chiffchaff made several appearances in the trees adjacent to the side; sadly no pictures of the former. Highlight was the Water Rail preening to the right of the hide (tricky getting a shot through the vegetation!).
