Maple Lodge Nature Reserve & Lynsters Farm

Steve Carter and I conducted a late morning visit to the reserve with conditions dry but cold with little wind if any. As the work party were busy conducting their duties around the clubhouse we decided to head off towards the Long Hedge briefly visiting the Teal and Lynsters hides along the way. Species encountered of any significance as follows:-
Little Grebe (3), Great Cormorant (1 on the clubhouse lake), Red Kite (1over), Common Buzzard (1over), Ring-necked Parakeet (10 briefly at the clubhouse feeding station), Great-spotted Woodpecker (1 at the clubhouse feeding station), Blackcap (female in the long hedge), Redwing (15 over heading north), Eurasian Jay (2 feasting on nuts at the clubhouse feeding station), Eurasian Siskin (c10 at the alder plantation).
