We visited Top Hill Low NR last Sunaday and and had a good day despite the bitter cold.
Most of the lagoons and marsh areas were frozen and there was little to see but on the 'D' and 'O' resevoirs there was a lot of birds including a good number of Goldeneye.
As an early 2009 outing there was plenty to add to our year list.
One highlight was a female Bullfinch just off the car park which showed for reasonable pictures. However, I remain seeking classic Bullfinch picture. The pictures were in dull light so from top to bottom range from ISO 800 to 1250 to 1600. Hence the last two have been processed through Neat Images software to filter out some noise.
