Barnes WWT

A milder day so we visited Barnes this afternoon. The highlights were some Siskins in the trees by the feeders - with Goldfinch and Blue Tit, so some sort of a yellow-bird party going on! - and the Bitterns. We could see 3 from the Peacock Hide, and saw one being chased by a couple of crows so had excellent views of it in flight.

Full list: Long-Tailed, Blue and Great Tits, Shoveler, Shelduck, Coot, Moorhen, Grey Heron, Teal, Wigeon, Dabchick, Canada Goose, Robin, Wren, Crow, Magpie, Jay, Siskin, Goidfinch, Egyptian Goose, Bittern, Pochard, Blackbird, Ring Necked Parakeet, Chaffinch, Mute Swan, Starling, Cormorant and (as we got into our car!), Goldcrest.
