Otter Valley / Blackhill Quarry

A few good birds up the valley along the western path towards near to the aqueduct with a family group (?) of 3 Spotted Flycatcher, numbers of Chiffchaff, a Gt spotted Woodpecker and 2 Bullfinch in the same area.

Moving on to Blackhill Quarry on the commons the lake produced a Cackling Goose (at rear of picture) together with c100 Canada Geese and a Little Grebe and Mallard. Green Woodpecker seen and heard several times here previously.
