Moor Green Firecrest

Today was my chance to try and see the Firecrest which has set up home at Finchampstead Ridges, near Moor Green Lakes. Despite spending around an hour and a half at its preferred location we only managed to see the bird for around half a second, before it disappeared back into the undergrowth! It was still a fantastic day's birding with around 30 Goosanders on show from the Grove Lake hide along with a drake Goldeneye. Most exciting of all was a female Bullfinch (they're not common down here by any means!!) which showed down to around 10 metres.
