A dreary day

A very dreary day being very overcast with intermittent drizzle and interludes of heavier rain pulses. There was no sign of the juvenile Osprey fledged in Clyde in July.


A GREAT CRESTED GREBE was a new arrival, as was a first-winter Little Grebe.

The adult Mute Swan was still there, along with 12 Tufted Ducks, 8 Northern Pochards and 44 Coot


Four LITTLE EGRETS still: two on the river just east of Bois Mill and another two just west of Mill Farm at Chenies Bottom.

Two adult Mute Swans at Bois Mill and a further adult on the river west of Mill Farm.

A mixed flock of 58 REDWING and 43 FIELDFARE flew west, whilst a single Eurasian Collared Dove roosted in the tall evergreen by Mill Farm Barns.
