Killingworth Lake

Today after school, we went to Killingworth Lake to look for the Barnacle Goose at the far end. As soon as we arrived, I saw it straight away because of the head colouring and it was much smaller than the Canadian geese although it was grazing with them. After searching the lake for any rare ducks we left after finding none. It was still light so we called into Swallow Ponds for a quick 20 minutes. When we got to the hide, we saw a little grebe straight away in front of the hide. There were many ducks such as pochard, teal, wigeon and mallard. Later on, we saw a great-crested grebe crossing the pond but it was to far away for a photo.
