I visited Holywell Pond yesterday - on a search for Scaup, which had been reported. A lot of the usual suspects were on view - Coot, Gadwall, Tufted Duck, Mute Swan, Canada Goose, Wigeon, Mallard + some very bonny Pochard. I did find the Scaup but he was too distant to photograph. I carrried on walking - following my nose. I stumbled in to Holywell Dene. It is a very lovely spot which I realised I had never been to before. Lots of woodland birds and very good views of Dipper.
