Jay, 13th November 2021

January 11th
A very foggy mornng but three Black-throated Divers were so close off the Sailing Club that they could be seen very clearly. Further out a record count for this winter of twelve Black-necked Grebes were found with two Slavonian Grebes in the distance. At Rodwell Halt a Jay was heard calling for the second time this week.

January 3rd
An excellent start to the year with Black-throated and Great Northern Divers and Black-necked and Slavonian Grebes all off the Sailing Club, whilst overhead four Ravens flew north. A bit further on a Goosander flew over the southern end of the Trail and a smart male Stonechat was at the end of Wyke Cutting. At Rodwell Halt a Great Spotted Woodpecker was drumming loudly.
