After talking with some others in the few hides I did go in to I asked if they had seen anything different, but none of them had so I decided to take a couple of shots of a Gadwall that was near and then moved on.
I must be unlucky when I come here as I never manage to see many passerines, but it is a good excuse to come again. I was hoping to see a Treecreeper but no such luck. I did come across one of the friendly Robins that are about.
I took a few pictures of one that came very close see below, although it all happened so quickly I didn't have time to try and get the right setting.
On the way back to the cap park I called in the Willow Hide for another look, but all that was showing was the usual species. There was a male Gadwall that was close to the hide so I took a photo of it just to add another picture to my day's walk, then as I neared the car park a lovely male Siskin made a appearance.
My final stop off was to check out the feeders to see if I might see the Marsh Tit that has been there on and off but it wasn't to be. I did have a close encounter with the Robin that is always in and around the hide. Just as I was packing up the cheeky chappy came and sat on the ledge right next to me. Next time I will take some food with me. The bird species on and around the feeders was Chaffinch, Robin, Dunnock, L/T/Tit, Great Tit and Blue Tit.
