A Morning of Threes at Cuerden Valley Park - 12th December 2009

Not a bad walk up at CVP this morning with a few sightings I haven’t seen in a while.

The 3’s included Greater Spotted Woodpecker, Roe Deer, Nuthatch, Jay and Treecreeper the latter being part of a very large Tit flock that included 25+ Long Tailed feeding within meters of me (one of those days I wish I’d taken the camera!)
Other sightings included a Kestrel, Sparrowhawk, Magpie, Jackdaw, Carrion Crow, Chaffinch, Robin and fewer Wren than I normaly see/hear.
On the lake was the usual lone Canada, Mallard, 30 Black Headed Gull, Coot and Moorhen, no sign of the Great Crested Grebe but with a guy fishing from the bench I usually look from I only had a quick look.
