At Carters Flood 300 Lapwing and four Redshank were present early this morning, whilst three Little Egret appeared to come out of roost from the alder wood.

Lapwing - Carters Flood

Overhead a few birds were on the move including Meadow Pipit, Pied Wagtail and Skylark, whilst two Chiffchaff in flooded woodland seem set to overwinter. Winter visitors are still thin on the ground with just the odd Fieldfare and Redwing present and a group of 5 Siskin in the alders.
