Sunday 5th February

I've been away for a few days down in Cornwall (see Pendeen Birding or the forthcoming write-up in Gnome's Birding Diary in a few days time) and today was the first opportunity to see just how the recent cold weather had affected the floods when I visited this afternoon. As expected they were completely frozen with just a few crows and a token assembly of a hundred or so large gulls, (nearly all lesser black-backed) standing around on the ice for a bit before heading off to Farmoor. As usual there were a few refugee teal along the Castle Mill Stream but apart from that it was all pretty birdless.
