Croston Twin Lakes and sewage works

Post by Neil Southworth » Thu Mar 31, 2016 8:53 pm

Drew a blank with hirundines - probably too sunny. 5 Buzzards were soaring together over Croston. 8 Tufted, 4 GC Grebe, 12 Canada Geese and 2 Oystercatcher were on the lakes, and apart from a few Pied wagtail, that was it.
