Today at Groby Pool

Another lunchtime foray into the wilds of Leicestershire for a scan through the wildfowl. Not enough time for accurate counts, but there was exactly zero Mandarin and nothing more exciting than Gadwall and Shoveler. Overall though there were a lot more ducks than last time I visited, with plenty of Wigeon and Pochard in particular. There were also more Cormorants than the Groby Pool fish stocks ought to support! Nothing to tax the gull identification skills either.

Sadly the tip has now closed. Could spell the end for Groby Pool's pre-roost.
