Another bitterly cold day. Fortunately we had a conservation work party scheduled - clearing the reeds that were blocking the views from the hides - so after a little while we'd worked up enough sweat so as not to notice. I was still trying to cool down about half-an-hour after finishing! But at least we've now got a clear view of the mud in east marsh for the anticpated wader-fest in spring!
Bird wise today, no real change, both the female Scaup & drake Goldeneye were still present. And the hoped for movement of rare wildfowl missed us as Whooper Swans were reported at two other sites. Bugger!
