Paxton Pits

Trip report for visit to Paxton Pits on Thursday 28th of March.

On a clear sunny morning 2 members met for a walk around this reserve. Luckily we missed the rain that arrived later in the day. 

Along the lanes Cettis Warblers were calling, and Chiff Chaffs, Blackcaps, Goldfinches and Greenfinches were seen. Also Great Spotted Woodpeckers and Green Woodpeckers were heard.

On the lakes Mallards, Tufted Ducks, Goldeneye and Wigeon were seen. A nice surprise was to see a Mallard with 10 ducklings.

After the walk a nice coffee in the visitor centre.

A good mornings walk with 34 species seen or heard.
