Vis and Vee

A little bit of visible migration over the top end of the ancient parish this morning 0830-1000:

Tree sparrow 2.
Skylark 17.
Meadow pipit 19.
Chaffinch 20.
Linnet 2.
Swallow 7.
Grey wag 3.
Alba wag 9.
Snipe 1.
Reed bunting 3.

All were heading south-east-ish into the stiff breeze..

The maize fields were chock-a-block with reed buntings- at least 20 knocking about.

The largest of Freeman's Pools had 10 wigeon, 3 tufted duck, a shoveler and 6 little grebes- plus the regular feral geese which noisily descended from the NE at about quarter to nine.

Still good numbers of common darter dragons in sheltered spots.
