A memorable GBC public birdwalk this morning, 23 folk saw a total of 50 species. The highlights were, Firecrest, Great White Egret and Slavonian Grebe, whilst we were treated to a close flyby of 2 Sparrowhawk, and watched displaying Great Crested Grebe on the pool. There was a ‘maybe’ Scaup, waiting for confirmation Dave!
