9am. A wonderful sunny morning, almost forgotten what they’re like! Had a stroll for an hour, Freeman’s Pool Little Grebe 8, a couple of Shoveler, Gadwall, Grey Heron, a few more Coot than of late. Still quite a number of swallows around but nothing like the numbers of the other day. Also of note up to 9 Robin seen, a 2 Linnet heading SE. The Flood was occupied by 40 Lapwing and usual Moorhen. On the Marsh 6 Little Egret. Saw 3 Chiffchaff silently flitting through the bushes.
