Maple Lodge Nature Reserve, Lynsters Farm & Stockers Lake

A brief afternoon visit to the reserve with Steve Carter provided the following species of note:-
Canada Goose (130), Cackling Goose (1), Greylag Goose (38), Egyptian Goose (3), Feral Rock Dove (c100), Stock Dove (10) all present at Lynsters Farm viewed from Lynsters Hide, Great-spotted Woodpecker (2), European Goldfinch (2).

                                          Cackling Goose Branta hutchinsii minima.

                                                                        Canada Goose.           
We then headed off to a rather wet and damp Stockers Lake where the causeway was flooded in many places. The flooded meadow at the west side of the causeway had attracted a Little Egret which we watched for some time.
