Adel Dam

As always Adel Dam was fairly quiet despite the crowds in Golden Acre - from a selfish point of view it's lovely but on the other hand it's a shame people seem to overlook it - they don't know what they are missing!

At the first hide we watched Coal, Great, Blue and Long Tailed Tits, a few Mallards, a Chaffinch and a squirrel.

When we went back outside my husband spotted something moving in the undergrowth - a Bank Vole, it ran about on and off some logs for quite a while - too quick for a photo unfortunately. As far I as can remember it's the first time i've seen one.

The little stream was flowing quite fast for a change though not quite the waterfall my daughter described it as!

Walking around we saw plenty of fungus - it's quite a haven for it here - we never fail to spot some every time we visit.

From the main hide the only thing of interest we saw was a pair of Teal in the distance and a couple of Moorhens.

Not the most bird filled afternoon but we all enjoyed it and that's the main thing!


  1. It sounded very enjoyable to me too Pam. Always good to see the LTTs and the Bank Vole must have been a nice surprise.

  2. Nice blog!
