Another day of dismal weather and terrible light and mist. I had a couple of hours at Stithians today and grabbed the following average shots. Toads breeding and in view at the Golden Lion cut off, and Tufted duck, Golden Eye, Great Crested Grebe, Little Grebe, Cormorant, Buzzard, in view at the Stuart Hutchings Hide. The Southern cut off had all the usual around the feeders including a male and female GS Woodpeckers. However we were totally captivated by a actively feeding little Grebe right under our nose at the Golden Lion hide.
