Martin J Palmer retires from work and GND still at Stewartby

in bleak conditions on my first day of retirement I was at Brogborough Lake from 2.00 - 2.30 and Stewartby Lake from 2.45 until 4.00 by when the cold and damp had well set in. No luck with any Gannets however.

25 Goldeneye (13 drakes) at Broggie

GREAT NORTHERN DIVER still present in middle of lake and showing particularly well on it's 11th day present; other species counts were 11 Gadwall, 13 Wigeon, 1f Goldeneye at Stew Lake and a poor tally of large gulls with just over 20 Herring Gulls, 17 G Backs and 14 L B Backs, 1m Bullfinch (Martin J Palmer)
