I decided to brave the wind and rain and headed off to Stockers Lake from Stockers Farm pumping station passing Bury Lake on route. Birds observed of interest as follows;
Lapwing (3 on flooded field), Mistle Thrush (2 on flooded field).
Kestrel (male taking refuge from the rain under the eaves of Stockers House), Goldeneye (2 male, 3 female),
Red-crested Pochard (pair), Goldeneye (immature male).
