15th November

There was a similar mix of birds on the floods today but the Greylags were joined by 26 Canada Geese, a good sized flock for the parish and the first seen since early Summer.

Curlew numbers had increased to around 200 birds (and Andy Johnston reported another 100 on floodwater near Scruton). Two Goosander were also on the floods at Langlands.

At Morton bridge the river was incredibly high and almost over-topped the railway bridge. However, apart from three Cormorant and a pair of Buzzards, it was quiet birdwise although I did see a large, distant flock of duck, probably Wigeon, drop onto flooded fields near Scruton.
