MSQ......A quick visit.
Lovely spring flowering Gorse.
A few hours around this superb reserve this morning,saw a few nice sightings in the lovely weather again.Highlights came in the form of a couple of drake Goosander heading off in a westerly direction over the reserve car park,no doubt heading towards the Trent and at least 6 Chiffchaff around the reserve making their welcome presence heard.Other sightings where more expected and included at least 3 Common Buzzard 'mewing' over the woodland with that lovely call and other sightings consisted of a pair of Siskin watched feeding in the plantation canopy and 7 north bound Fieldfare passed overhead.A gorgeous morning,with more lovely spring sunshine.
