We had a look this afternoon and found a drake Mandarin Duck, looking very smart, near the duck feeding area hiding away near the willows. Never seen one here before though they are regularly seen in the Ryburn Valley.
Kingfisher briefly near the outflow
1 adult Herring Gull among the Black-headed and Common Gulls
