While waiting, a Cettis Warbler called and flitted through the reeds, a Kingfisher commuted across the water, Water Rail scurried through the reed bases and three Snipe enjoyed the mud. The wildfowl were made up of Tufted Duck, Gadwall, two Shoveler, Wigeon, Teal and Pochard. Overhead, a steady migration of Fieldfare, Redwing, Skylark and Meadow Pipit occured.
A very pleasant morning was had, in the company of Dave H and Mark P, before the clouds took over and heavy rain started to fall. Not a lot of photo opportunities, so my time was taken studying a very obliging Mute Swan, with a female Pochard in a support role.
