25th August 2009

Spent quite some time at Earlswood today. First up as usual were the lakes, with a Tufted Duck at Windmill Pool, 1 or 2 Mute Swan at Engine Pool, and 7 Common Terns counted. A Teal and 1+ Tufted Duck were still at Terry's Pool, and also a Kingfisher. I then went to Earlswood STW where I saw 3 Grey Wagtails and 2 Pied Wagtails on the filter beds, a Fox along Malthouse Lane after the first gate, and a dead Buzzard on the railway close to the M42 bridge. At Forshaw Heath, eventually determined that there were 50+ House Sparrows at a field.
