19th September 2008
Had quite a good day at Earlswood today. During the afternoon, saw a male Great Spotted Woodpecker and 2 Nuthatches in New Fallings Coppice / Little Clowes Wood. Around Terry's Pool, saw what I think was a female Siskin and I think I could hear others as well. Saw a Kingfisher on 3 occasions, once at Engine Pool and twice at Windmill Pool. Other notable birds seen at the lakes were 3 Cormorants and a Tufted Duck. Also, during the early evening, 3 Wigeon appeared on Windmill Pool. Had quite a good view of a female Common Pheasant in a field to the west of Windmill Pool. At least 1 Tawny Owl heard calling from around Engine Pool / Terry's Pool and near New Fallings Coppice car park. No terns or hirundines were seen.
