After giving up on my Teesside University list since I have only added two species since october, today I made an unexpected addition. Two Drake Mallards were sitting amongst the bushes in the car park behind the libary.
With no source of water on campus I can only think that they have come from the pond in front of MIMA art gallery which is not that far away,or they have come from the other side of the river. I also had a Cormorant fly over.
Maybe I will add a few more species to the list before the year ends, I should also check the MIMA pond surely it's overlooked.
