Big Waters - Patch Tick

On Sunday Carole and I headed up to Big Waters for a couple of hours.  We did a quick walk round the public area looking for Chiff Chaffs but no luck so up to the hide and heard Willow Tit from the boardwalk but no views, the same happened in the hide.  6 Oystercatchers were seen and on the island was a Swan fast asleep which I suspected was a Whooper Swan but it took nearly an hour before it stirred and slipped into the water.  A Greenfinch in the Feeding Station was an unusual occurrence and also 3 Yellowhammers were quite a colourful sight.  The rest of the crew came in after their walk and stayed for a 15 minute chat before Carole and I headed off for a Toby Carvery.  Here are a couple of pictures from our brief visit.
