Such is life...........

Visited the patch AM. Freeman’s area, pool saw Goldeneye, Gadwall, Coot and Moorhen. In the trees were plenty of Redwing, flying off into wood, and a Great spotted Woodpecker female. Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Bullfinch on track, Fieldfare half a dozen, 40 here the other day. Frog Pond saw 12 Wigeon. On Wildfowlers’ Pool Goldeneye, Shelduck, Snipe, Teal, Tufted Duck. On the Flood were 20 Black-tailed Godwit. On the marsh 5 Little Egret, 2 Great crested Grebe, Canada’s and Greylags. At the cutting birding was interrupted by a dying rabbit, my diagnosis of the observation was correct as a Stoat reappeared and continued its killing, they take forever, luckily a bloke suddenly turned up with a terrier which dispatched of the poor thing instantly. We watched as the Stoat dragged the rabbit off. Being a high tide I was hoping to see Pipits but couldn’t find any. 

and the lesser yellowlegs was also in the area of widfowlers this afternoon.
