6th Jan

Very small ice free patches on the main bodies of pool2 & joes pond

drake Rudworth clinging on, @200HGulls on the ice.
40 Teal roosting on joes - flying out to night feed on becks at night.

Very very quiet - we saw more birds in the Town park, than we did on the whole of the rest of the walk across via the Coalfield Way.

Bumped into DC - making his token annual visit to the reserve
