Almost 95% ice coverage of the ponds gave the ideal opportunity to do a count of the various birds on the ponds, the list is as follows-Mallard(48),Teal(45),Shelduck(5),Coot(19),Wigeon(56),Tufted Duck(37),Oystercatcher(24),Goldeneye(11),Goosander(3),Mute Swan(2),Cormorant(3),Moorhen(3),Snipe(4),Black Headed Gull(81),Common Gull(5).
Also of note were 6 Redwings and a Stoat in full ermine.
