More mud than flood

A late afternoon visit to the rapidly diminishing flood water at Coate saw a lot fewer birds than previously with just four Teal, three Lapwing and the same of Moorhens on the water. As usual, in the horses field were plenty of Pied Wagtails, a couple of Meadow Pipits landed, briefly on the wires and overhead there were at least a hundred Swallows along with a few House Martins. It can’t be long before the bulk of them are gone.
