Slapton 11th Feb

A drive out to Slapton for a walk along the Ley in the gloom and mist was just enough for me today as I have a bit of a cold and was feeling quite crappy. Not much around, with fewer than usual numbers of ducks on the Ley but I did find 5 redhead goosanders, my first at Slapton, and a nice male goldeneye.

The Seabreeze cafe was closed for refurbishment so had to make do with a sandwich and a bottle of squash from the shop while I fed the ducks at Torcross with duck food also purchased from the shop. It was quite fun feeding them as they walked all over my shoes and were joined by a few coot.

No Cettis warblers heard today although it was very gloomy, I hope some have survived the cold snap we had in December.
