There's quite a bit of flooding in the fields again, with 8 Shelduck on the main flood.

The River Douglas was quite high with around 20 Mallard close to or on the banks.

Dunnock, Chaffinch, Skylark heard, a flock of around 20 Fieldfare together with 30 or so Starling in the hawthorn hedges, Rook, Carrion Crow, Jay & Magpie seen.
