Back to Big waters

Time off for good behavior and I went to Big waters, the lake was home to lots of Mallard, Teal and Wigeon. There were also lots of duck in the reeds and 5 Goldeneye and 2 Gadwall . As usual the island was a roost for 10 Cormorants. The feeding station was visited regularly by at least 2 Willow tits which gathered, then hid black sunflower seeds. When I got home feathers in the garden led me to a freshly killed Collared dove, a Sparrowhawk the prime suspect.
