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.
