On the 10th January 2015….
Killingworth is always a favorite stopping off point, before or after a weekly food shop. The usual winter visitors were around today, which included a couple of Goosanders, over 12 Goldeneye, 45-50 Tufted Duck, 5 Pochard and over 50 Mute Swans.
Whilst enjoying some lunch parked up against the lake, a pair of Shovelers flew past. There was no sign of the Scaup which was present last week, however this has also been recorded at other nearby sites such as Swallow.
