Branton Ponds 9th January 2013

What a difference a day makes,the ponds today were looking glorious in a lovely midwinter sunlight. The Shelduck numbers had risen to 6 and were joined by many Teal and Wigeon, along by the riverside I came across a lone Willow Tit. Back on the ponds 23 Curlew were on the East Pond island and 26 Herring Gulls were on the West Pond with 50+ Common Gulls. Kingfishers were also in evidence as I noted 2 on the East Pond with another bird showing well in one of the small bays.
