Devon Goosander count

Synchronied Goosander roost count on 12 Nov produced 96 birds including 15 males, four of which still showed signs of moult, Fort-eight were on Dartmoor (top site Venford with 24), and 48 elsewhere (top site Blackhill Quarry with 23). There were no Goosanders roosting at 10 of the 24 sites visited, but seven at Hennock on evening of 11th have been included as they must have roosted somewhere! Thanks to all who took part.
