|4 Gadwall along the Colne this morning flew off north|
|17 Lapwing along the Colne early morning all moved off north|
|1st year Mute Swan - around 7 birds present on the Colne this morning|
A quick search of the river-side vegetation for Jack Snipe resulted no Jack Snipe but instead a dislocated knee (fortunately it popped back in)! A painful limp back along Bonehead Ditch produced just a single Common Teal and overhead 3 Fieldfare S, 1 Cormorant E and 1+ Grey Heron S were the only birds seen moving in what was now almost a whiteout, so we decided to call it a day (no Short-eared Owls seen this morning). At Stanwell Moor Village, 1f Reed Bunting was along the stream, and c7 Fieldfare were on the bank of King George VI Reservoir.
Back home the feeders were busy, with 1 Pied Wagtail, 1 Stock Dove, 1 Great Spotted Woodpecker, 1 Nuthatch, 3 Greenfinch, 3 Chaffinch, several Goldfinch, Blue Tit, Long-tailed Tit, 2 Coal Tit, Blackbird, 3 Robin, Ring-necked Parakeet, several Woodpigeon and a Magpie.
