A walk along the river today. A Barn Owl was sitting out in broad daylight in its favoured field just north of Morton bridge.
I hoped that the freezing conditions would have brought wildfowl on to the river but in fact it was very quiet on the water with only a dozen Mallard and a single Goosander. I did see 22 Cormorants, including one group of 17 birds, the largest single flock I have seen in the parish.
Two Little Egrets continued the winter records of this species and along Potter Lane...
...there were 22 Meadow Pipits and a distant Fox in a beet field here.
Finally, a Grey Wagtail was again at Morton sewage works.
