Weekday and Weekend Walks, and Weekend Coach Outings

Moor Green Lakes 2017
Wednesday morning walk

Date: Wednesday 13 December 2017 at 09:30

Details:

On a rather cold and damp morning the birds were more active than the members, with a very poor turn out of only 5 people - the lowest since 2006.

We saw goosander, mandarin and siskin, which were the best sightings of the day.

There had been hawfinches reported but none were seen.

Although the forecast was for rain we only had two showers and we did see 51 species.
