Grand Western Canal

Afraid I could not match the Desert Wheatear on my WeBS today. However, in addition to the usual Mallard, Moorhen, Mute Swan and a few Coot, I did get to see 5 Goosander (3 male + 2 redheads), 4 Kingfisher, 4 Reed Bunting, 2 Water Rail, and a Little Grebe. However, the highlight of the day has to be the young OTTER which was swimming in and out of the reeds completely ignoring (or maybe oblivious) of me watching it for 3 or 4 minutes from the other side of the canal.
