Who mentioned spring....................

Had a quick visit this morning, managed to cycle through without seeing a great deal! It was very cold thanks to an icy wind. My plan was to see what, if anything, the forecasted rain might drop. Unfortunately the idea of a cup of tea and much needed warmth put an end to that idea!
Freeman’s Pool had a dozen tufted duck, a handsome gadwall, 6 oystercatchers, a number of Shelduck coming and going and Coot. Chiffchaff singing, I counted 8 on Friday from Freeman’s to the pylons. The horse, grazing at the top end, which is looking worse for wear has apparently been reported to the RSPCA.
The track had chaffinch, greenfinch and 2 bullfinch, there was a Buzzard on a fence post. On the flood I saw 2 LRP and 3 pied wagtail plus 2 Reed Bunting. It began to rain so I set off home!
