Low Moor Dams

Approx 1000 hrs at Harold Park Lake which was the most disappointing I've known it. 4 Mute Swan and for the first time in a long while Judy Hogg pursuing her targets. Just small gulls in good numbers, Coots, Moorhens & c10 Tufted Duck. No sign of the GC Grebe pr and nothing on Jug Dam worth a mention. Others were House Sparrows, 2 Blackbird and a singing Mistle Thrush, Starlings.

Park Dam in a stiff breeze produced 8 Goosander comprising 6 m, 2 f. These birds were constantly having tribal squabbles. 5 Little Grebe were seen speading themselves around different sections of the water. 

Tufted Duck amounted to c20, Canadas c10, LBBG 2 & small gulls aplenty.
Passerines: 6 Blackbirds, several House Sparrows, couple Blue Tit, 1 each Greenfinch, Chaffinch & Starlings.
