Gailey Res, Stafordshire.

Last bit of UK birding before we return home.

Mute Swan (Cisne Vulgar / Cygnus olor).
I dropped Jayne off at Boundry Mills just off Junction 10 of the M6 before going North a short way to Gailey Res where I did a fool loop of the Smaller lake. On the way around the site I saw Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula), Black-headed (Gaviota Riedora / Larus ridibundus) and Lesser Black-backed Gulls (Gaviota Sombria / Larus fuscus), Common Buzzard (Busardo Ratonero / Buteo buteo), Common Buzzard (Busardo Ratonero / Buteo buteo), Dunnock (Acentor Común / Prunella modularis), Pheasant (Faisán Vulgar / Phaisanus colchicus), Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), Canada Geese (BarnaclaCanadiense /Branta canadensis), Woodpigeon (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus), Eurasian Coot (Focha Común / Fulica atra), Grey Heron (Garza Real / Ardea cinerea), Great Crested (Somormujo Lavanco / Podiceps cristatus) and Little Grebes (Zampullín Común / Tachybaptus ruficollis), Mute Swan (Cisne Vulgar / Cygnus olor), Great Cormorant (Cormorán Grande / Phalacrocroax carbo), Tufted Duck (Porrón Monudo / Aythya fuligula), Common Moorhen (Gallineta Común / Gallinulas chloropus), Mallard (Anade Azulón / Anas platyrhynchos), a cracking roosting Tawny Owl (Cárabo Común / Strix aluco) and a Cetti's Warbler (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti) which at the time I thought was a good bird but had no idea until I spoke to John Holian later that it was a new species for the site and the 200th species for Gailey in total.
Canada Geese (BarnaclaCanadiense /Branta canadensis).
