Wednesday 23rd October

After the (relative) excitement of the start of the week it's been a bit disappointing since then. Sure we now have some flood waters but after the birdy start to the week, numbers have dropped off somewhat. Most of the Wigeon have stayed away though there have been a few birds about though at present they are outnumbered by the Teal. A dozen or so Golden Plover have been hanging around as well as modest Lapwing counts. The highlight over the last few days has been a single DUNLIN (the first proper wader for some time) that has been hanging out with the Goldies.

I also forgot to mention a PEREGRINE that was flying around on Monday buzzing the assembled birds on the floods.
