Mixenden Res'r / Lee Mount

3 Canadas on Mixenden this morning plus a newly hatched group of 6 Mallard chicks but nothing else on the water. The gulls aren't showing an interest there yet.
1 Chiff-chaff singing in the plantation

Best bird of the week came while I did a bit of gardening this afternoon - a Nuthatch calling from the trees in the park - sounded like a young bird
Several groups of Swifts were heading SW this afternoon with one group of around 35 birds.

Not long left now for Swift watching Dave. The Kingfishers seem to have moved on from Mixenden with no recent sightings.
