On the 24th February:

1979

A bright, sunny, cold day, with most of Chew Valley Lake frozen. We were at Villice Bay when we heard two loud, unmistakable calls from a small finch flying from a nearby tree, a Twite, a first record for the lake.

Around the lake, in the open areas of water, we saw a Red-necked Grebe, a Slavonian Grebe, around 80 Goosanders, 45 Ruddy Ducks and 13 Bewick's Swans. We also saw 2 adult Mediterranean Gulls, 12 Dunlin and a Bittern.

1983
