Eyes Lane

Receding flood but still a decent selection of waterfowl although distant and lower numbers than Saturday.

Managed to pick out an increased number of Shoveler initially in flight and then on the flood with at least 4 males and 3 females. Possibly up to about 10.

Still some Pintail, Wigeon and Teal plus 3 Lapwing and a Sparrowhawk.

All the Canada Geese bar one have left. The pair of Mute Swans has relocated to the field by the Yarrow and all the duck were hidden in the marshy area, where there seemed to be single figures of Wigeon, Pintail and Shoveler. 4 Coot were on the main water. Other than that it was mainly Lapwing c100 and Black-headed Gulls 500+. Buzzard, Peregrine, Merlin and Jessy were seen with Merlin and Peregrine having a set to at one stage. Plenty of Skylark fluttering around, but just a few Starling and a small flock of Long-tailed Tits represented passerines.
