Increasing teal and wigeon numbers

← Back to Washington sightings

An excellent count (for Washington) of 16 wigeon was noted on Wader Lake this morning. This winter visitor seems to be slowly increasing in number year-on-year.

Teal numbers are also on the rise as winter approaches, with 150 mainly on Wader Lake, as well as birds utilising the newly-established filter reedbeds and reservoir.

Tawny owl and barn owl have been very active on site on recent evenings. At least five tawny owl can be heard calling in the woodlands and three barn owl are often spotted hunting across Wader Lake.
