Rishton Grebes

A quick visit to Rishton Reservoir this morning produced two pairs of Great Crested Grebes in amongst the ice. They'll be starting their courtship rituals soon, something I look forward to each year.

There were 87 Lapwings on the far bank along with a single Oystercatcher and Curlew. Several gulls around but nothing unusual in amongst them.

The redpolls are still coming down to the garden feeders and I heard a few Siskins yesterday - they've been notable by their absence but I guess things will start moving an a week or so or perhaps not if another cold blast arrives as predicted.
