"Quite a good show in the Meadow this afternoon. Two HOUSE MARTINS and a SWALLOW were circling high above, then moved off, but later there were five house martins. On the flood five LITTLE RINGED PLOVER, two OYSTERCATCHERS, three REDSHANK, 60-70 golden plover, two SHELDUCK still,one drake PINTAIL, two GADWALL, one LITTLE EGRET, one grey heron plus plenty wigeon, some teal and a small number of black-headed gulls and lesser black-backed gulls. And the kestrel yet again in BF. A few days ago there were a pair of green woodpeckers in BF and some yaffling. Let's hope they are planning to nest."
