At last we had a decent amount of rain overnight which managed to freshen thing up a little though we really need a few more days like that to make a proper difference. A mid afternoon visit to the floods found not much of note: the tailless BAR-TAILED GODWIT was still about, the 2 OYSTERCATCHERS were still around and there was a SHELDUCK on the floods. In addition Richard Foster reported one RINGED and one LITTLE RINGED PLOVER. I did get a report of a NIGHTINGALE singing in the Wolvercote area. It was recorded four days ago by a Rumi Mohideen and in all probability heard again yesterday evening by Steve Goddard. This is a great year tick for the patch.
