Another quiet day did not yield any more decent birds than recently. Waders continue to feed on the narrows and around the pools with a Ring Plover, a Golden Plover and a Dunlin feeding with the more common waders. A sizeable flock of fifty two Lapwings fed in the north-west fields. Only eight Woodcocks were flushed inland whilst fifty six Snipe were again in the wetlands.

 Only thirty one Skylarks were seen today....
....although fifty two Lapwings were in the north-west fields. 
With at least three pairs of Stonechats scattered around, hopefully the short, cold snaps of November and December will not hit them as hard as the prolonged cold weather experienced earlier this year. Pictures (c) Ben Porter
