Montreathmont Hide, Friday 6th December, 2019.

Small flock of Crossbills 200 metres from car parking, mobile.
Hide; Jay, Sparrowhawk, Siskin, Dunnock, Blue, Coal, Great Tits, Robin, Chaffinch, Wren, Blackbird, Male and female Great Spotted Woodpeckers, and a Bank Vole.
Feeders filled, only Niger and some mixed seed in buckets. Niger feeder blocked by very damp seed, if topping up the feeder it's best to empty out the remains into a container, add new seed and top up with the old if it's Ok.

Saturday 7/12/2019 : Great White Egret still around on west side of Basin. This morning it was feeding (along with a Little Egret) on the flooded field south of the Wigeon hide. Watched it take a large flounder from these ponds and struggle to get it down its throat. Also, there was a Green Sandpiper near the Shelduck hide.
