Well its my last visit of the year to good old WH and it all started at first light and it was blowing a gale.  As is the norm, I started at the quarry entrance area.  Birds noted were Magpie, Starling, Black Headed Gull, Blackbird, 9 Tufted Duck, at least a couple of Goldcrest, 75 Wigeon, a pair of Pintail, 1 Shoveler, many Lapwing, Wren, a single Coot, Carrion Crow, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Greylag Geese, 2 Mute Swan with another 10 around the site, Robin and Great Tit. 
On to the lanes where it is a lot more open and felt twice as windy I added Goldfinch, Woodpigeon, 2 Kestrel, Meadow Pipit, 2 Cormorant, Pied Wagtail, Moorhen, a Herring Gull flew over flanked with two Great Black-backed Gulls, 1 Little Owl in the usual tree, 2 Buzzards, 5+ Stock Dove, many Fieldfare, Chaffinch, Redwing, Blue Tit, Canada Geese, Pheasant and Dunnock. 
Thats 2012 done. See you in 2013.
