Asked the chaps who were fencing off Freeman's Wood, and yes its going all the way round and he emphasised the private land bit. Well at least the birds will be undisturbed for now. Freeman’s Pool dozen Gadwall, Goldeneye 2, Coot, Swan, Little Grebe and a pair of tufties.
The track was quiet, saw 14 Fieldfare, Blackbird and Bullfinch. Bumped into Guy and Ola so walked back towards sewerage works. Little Egret, Linnet flew over. At the works were numerous Meadow Pipits, Pied and Grey Wagtails. A dozen Curlew in the field opposite, a flock of 120 Starlings were flushed by a Sparrowhawk and a pair of Great spotted Woodpecker in the trees.
