Two drake Goosanders on Cowhill Belt Pond (Woburn Pk) this morning. Park by the Triumph garage, and look thro the trees to view.

In the park a little bit more free water than a week ago, and wildfowl numbers slowly building back up. Didn't do a full count, but 3 Shovelers, 90 Wigeons, 120 Greylags, 15 Gadwalls, 5 Teals, 18 Mute Swans, 65 Canadas and 100 Mallards,

The Waxwing count was 220 at 0830-0840 (Barry Nightingale)
