29th November Maple Lodge

Birding with Paul Lewis started slow a Green Woodpecker was visible on the cricket pitch before
entering the reserve,we made our way to Rotunda hide where a few teal were distant but calling.
Next up the Teal hide which incidentally only produced Coot no Teal.
At the Paddock in the sky a Common Buzzard was mobbed by Corvids.
On to Lynsters where a number of Mute Swans obliged with Rooks and Jackdaws favouring
the local farm.
At Long Hedge a single Little grebe in partial summer plumage was seen briefly.
Walking back down Long Hedge up to 15 Redwings flew over and lone male Siskin showed in
the hawthorns.

Also of note here was a female blackcap before we made our way to the Club house hide
where at the feeding station superb Jays obliged.
Finally 10 Ring necked Parakeets was our parting shot of the morning,a male in resplendent
plumage was the boldest.
