Brikacre

Big Lodge: 12 Tufted Duck,2 GC Grebes, 5 Mute Swans as well as lots of Mallard Coot and BH Gulls.
Top Lodge: Grey Heron, 1x Teal. Water Rail out in the open. 2 Reed Buntings. A few Moorhens.

Water Rail brings my Chorley list to one more than it was this morning. Gary should not be worried yet.
