Glau­cous and Ice­land Gulls are pos­si­bil­i­ties in win­ter, and Com­mon Sand­pipers pass through on mi­gra­tion and may linger. Dur­ing spring 2015, a Ring-necked Duck was present. In the wood­land on the south side of the lake we chanced upon a Lesser Spot­ted Al­low a full day to re­ally make the most of ev­ery­thing this site has to of­fer Wood­pecker, high in the canopy. Be­yond Bes­som Bridge at the north end lies Hurscombe Na­ture Re­serve. The wood­land at­tracts Bram­bling and Siskin, and Buz­zards soar over­head. Goldfinch, Bullfinch, Nuthatch and Blue and Long-tailed Tit are very likely. Lis­ten for Chifchaff. As an added treat, Roe Deer are fre­quently seen around the shores.
