Monday 5th December 2011 - Afternoon

Green Sandpiper

14:00 > 15:00
Overcast, cool NW wind.

A first visit for a few weeks, well with anything of note to report here. On the whole quiet and the major change in the landscaping sees the main area now extended as one with the area to the east that has been worked over the last year. The valley still needs a flood though to make it of any interest it seems.

Not too much to report, a group of three Green Sandpipers and a couple of Common Snipe being the highlight. Passage Common Buzzard and Little Egret the only other birds of note.

Plenty of winter thrushes along the hedgrerows whilst a charm of Goldfinches probably a couple of hundred birds strong flits about. Out on the stubble of what were the extensive thistle and scrub area around 70 Lapwing pick about.

And yes I know this was last updated in July but watch this space, i've four months of records to upload in the coming days.
