Out of Circulation

After a great Sunday I woke up on Monday morning with a sore throat and high temperature. Unfortunately this meant a stay in hospital for as it turned out three days. I had a nice room but unfortunately a lousy view. The only bird I saw in the whole time was a Red Kite. Arriving back home this afternoon there were two Red Kites lazily circling low over our back gardens. Very nice. I needed a bit of fresh air so we took the dog for a short walk at Coate. This was just from the car park to the causeway and back. Around the diving board duck numbers were well down but there were twenty-six Swans and a Greylag Goose. A Nuthatch was calling from the trees around the car park. With a fairly strong cold wind I wasn’t expecting much action and I was right. Highlights were a single singing Willow Warbler and four singing Chiffchaffs. A quick look i at the flood water in Chiseldon found a pair of Gadwall, a site tick for me.
