I made a quick visit to the floodwater at Coate on my way home from work. Just the usual stuff with a couple each of Lapwing and Shelduck, three Teal, four Gadwall and a hybrid Greylag Goose mingling with the Canada flock.
I also drove along to Folly Farm to give the side of Liddington a scan. All I could see was a few corvids and a lot of rabbits although I didn’t hang around for long in the chill wind. The evening dog walk was windy and cold. A Mallard dropped into a back garden along Butts Road. Apart from a few Blackbirds very little else was seen but a Green Woodpecker and three singing Song Thrushes were heard.
