User's notes

Initially I saw a group of around six in the car park when I arrived, they appearted to be feeding. They then moved down to the open area along the river bank, moving backwards and forwards along there. Individually they were flitting quickly from one spot to another on the ground apparently searching for food. I only observed one obvious male because of his colouring.
