A Quick walk around Stockers Lake
A circular walk of Stockers today in search of Smew be it a red head,Anna Marett and I looked but alas only found Goldeneye good numbers of Wigeon and a good number of Red crested Pochards at least 8 and four on Bury GP.
Also large numbers of Coot we met Messrs Hulls and Lapworth and Tony revealed that Jack Snipe were at Ruislip Lido.
The ice covered a great deal of the lake and on it stood a few gulls.
Finally near the Alders a flock of splendid Siskin .
