Sounds like a good name for a Swedish Black Metal band.
Out yesterday morning to see if there was anything interesting around as a result of the cold weather. The lakes at Watermead Country Park South were pretty much frozen with most of the wildfowl forced onto a bit of open water by the island.
Dropping down from the Mammoth there were a couple of female Teal in the cut that acts as a storm drain. The light was pretty good so I started doing a bit of digiscoping.
As I was photographing the Teal I was aware of a couple of Moorhen in the cut but under all the brambles I noticed another movement… a Water Rail. Eventually, two Water Rail were feeding out in the open, clearly forced out of the reedbeds by the freezing temperatures.
Back on the main lakes I found another colour-ringed Black-headed Gull – white TC55 – that I assume is another Polish bird from Poznan.
