|The Russian White-fronted Goose in what must be familiar conditions pic AMP|
The adult White-fronted Goose, seen in early January, was rediscovered by AMP on the 9th, presumably having been out-of-sight somewhere in the area. It was seen on and off for the rest of the month around the north reservoirs or on No 5 through the fence at Coppermill Lane.
A Dunlin was found on the 11th on East Warwick during the survey which also showed the Common Sandpiper was still wintering on No 5. Ice in the past has seen good numbers of Common Snipe on the reservoirs. But with the most likely spots off-limits, it was only added to the year list on the 26th when one was spotted in the No 1 reed-bed. A 1W Caspian Gull was seen by DH on No 5 through the fence on the 1st.
