Brief Birding

When I left home for work this morning there were a couple of vocal Tawny Owls moving around the village. With no moon to give any light I wasn’t able to see them though. On my way home this afternoon I made a couple of stops for birds. The first was at Southleaze where I was hoping to find some wader friendly muddy margins by the lake. Too much water for that and very quiet all round with just a pair of Mallards and single Little Grebe and Moorhen. Greenfinch and Bullfinch were heard but not seen. Then it was over to the Coate flood water, quiet here as well with 3 Lapwing, a Shelduck, 11 Gadwall and a few Canada Geese. A small flock of Linnets were in with the horses and twenty or so Swallows were flying around the farm.
