2nd January 2022
The 2nd winter Caspian Gull was still present at Trench Pool the following morning, 24th, before disappea
A BEADED TIT was seen briefly on the Shropshire Union Canal near to Breakwater Meadow Marina, Ellesmere, 2nd January. The following morning I was searching for this mega Salop tick but nothin after a good two hours. However, I did get a county tick shortly afterwards on Ellesmere. Well if you can count it as one. An Egyptian Goose was on the south side hanging out with a male Mandarin! After this, I had nothin of note on the other meres and at Woodlane it was dead. Although a fly over Red Kite was a first for me on my old local patch.
This Egyptian Goose was a county tick although I could of got the long staying two birds at Venus Pool if I really wanted to. The only other Egyptian Goose that I’ve ever seen was some 35 years ago at Holkham, Norfolk.
Hanging out with the dodgy goose was this exotic male Mandarin
This Red Kite flew over the east end of Woodlane towards the tip. My only other North Salop kite was also my first one for the county at the time with an individual in September 1991 near Oswestry. Then it was like one or two records a year in the county.
Good numbers of tits moving through including this Long-tailed Tit
A first for me at Trench Pool was this Goldeneye for one day, 27th December. Possibly 0nly the second site record.
And also at Trench Pool the Caspian Gull kept me and the few that twitched it, entertained for a few hours in the morning. A few days ago it was back at Belvide to where it was first sighted on the 14 -15th December
The 2nd winter Yellow-legged Gull however, stuck around Trench Pool all day
