Mandarin Willington 24 January
The walk round Willington produced no great birding surprises, but improving the paths and access has clearly turned the area into a regular and rather busy week-end walkway. Green Sandpiper Little Egret Buzzard and a flock of 40 Fieldfares provided the highlights around the main Lake. The Mandarin above was taken amongst the exotic collection by the Danish camp. large numbers of Mandarin seemed quite innocuous amongst the Red Breasted Geese, Hooded Mergansers, Smew and Golden Pheasants - to name but a few !!!
