Box End Park WeBS: 13/10/2013

It was grim at Box End Park this morning for my monthly WeBS count. Although still quite warm it was raining heavily with a strong northerly breeze. There were a small number of Redwings in the area, no sign of any passage today.

The survey results were as follows:

Black-headed Gull 24 (37 Over West)
Cormorant 8
Great Crested Grebe 2
Grey Heron 1
Lapwing 1
Mallard 27 (22+ Over NW and 12 Over N)
Moorhen 1
Mute Swan 8

Total number of species: 8 Individuals: 72

I had planned to survey Putnoe Wood as well but decided to put that off, given the conditions the end of the Grand Prix seemed the better option :-)
