The Grey Seal colony was still delighting delegates today, but there was a colder, stronger wind, so we spent less time there. We went on to another location, but were unable to track down the Shore larks, but we did see a large flock of Snow Buntings, which also contained Linnets and Twite. Here, we also saw Brent Geese, Curlew, Shelduck, Wigeon and the cuter-looking, but scarcer Common Seal. As we had made such good time, we also called in at Covenham Reservoir where a Great Northern Diver gave us the run around, until we realised two were at it. Also seen here were Great Crested Grebes, Little Grebes, Cormorants (loads), a Grey Wagtail and David spotted a Barn Owl. 3 locations, plenty of species, and all for only a tenner!
