Hunkering for better weather.......

Happy 2012 to all,  here’s to a prosperous birding New Year.
Freeman’s Pool had six Gadwall, Coot, Mallard, Swan, 2 Wigeon, 1 Oystercatcher and a few gulls. At Marsh Point a Little Egret was making slow headway in the very windy conditions, eventually giving up and landing opposite. Fields saw a few Crows, Magpies and Chaffinch. Hedges were quiet with only Wren, Blackbird seen in the foul weather. On the marsh were a further 2 Little Egret, Curlew and on the mud flats a couple of thousand Lapwing. The Flood had 1 Redshank and 42 BH Gulls. Further down river towards the pylons it was much the same, quiet as the weather deteriorated. 9 Blackbirds near sewage works.  Hunkered down Buzzard perched on fence post.
