2 Dec - A frosty fine day, a quick look at the Water Park produced 9 Goosander (5 drakes and 4 redheads) on pit 30. Redhead Smews had been reported earlier on pit 28/29. Pit 74 from twitcher's gate was very productive - with high water levels thronged with wildfowl - 109 Shoveler was my highest ever count in the CWP - also 3 Pintail (2m,1f) c150 Teal, c300 Wigeon, drake Goldeneye, drake Pochard, 30 Tufted Duck, 6 Curlew, 10 Lapwings, a Little Egret, a flyover Redpoll, and Water Rail and Great Spotted Woodpecker heard.
