After our earlier trips decided to try our luck at St. Ives has usually been a
good source of bird activity particularly on the coppice pond. We were not
dissappointed with about 30 Mallards, 20 Canadas, 10 Coots and 2 Moorhen.
In addition we spotted a pair of Tufted Ducks for the first time and as we were
walking round the pond a Meadow Pipit appeared. This just capped another
great mornings sightings off.
