We visited Top Hill Low today and did something I cannot remember doing before. Retreated for the weather not that it was too wet or cold or. Just miserable no decent light , drizzling (got harder and darker skies).
So we looked in at the visitors centre and the highlight was Bramblings, males in the tree line but a female came below the feeders. Plenty of rabbits and Moor Hens in this area, the resident Woodcock was not showing though.
We visited North and South lagoons and looked over O reservoir where there was a male Goldeneye. From South Lagoon main hide I could see a female Goldeneye, moving to the smaller hide I managed these distant shots of this constant diver (Ronaldo eat your heart - and yes I am a great fan).
We went for lunch intent on visiting more of the reserve and then beat the retreat! It wasn't nice.
