Moses Gate Country Park

I decided to go to Moses Gate today to pick a Goosander or two for my new year list.  I was also hopeful I might see a Kingfisher or Dipper on the River Irwell there but no luck there I'm afraid. 

Here's a quick summary of what I did see:
  • Goosander (8 male and 12 female)
  • Grey Heron
  • Tufted Duck
  • Long tailed Tit
  • Dunnock
  • Robin
  • Carrion Crow
  • Great Tit
  • Blue Tit
  • Blackbird
  • Black headed Gull
  • Mute Swan
  • Mallard
  • Pigeon
  • Canada Goose
  • Moorhen
  • Coot
  • and two quite beautiful but elusive deer faun
