20.01.22. Birdlog.

A look from the bottom of Smithy Lane across Lordship Marsh where 257 Pink-footed Goose were gathered to feed with c67 Eurasian Curlew. Further out by Hill view Farm were the herd of Whooper Swan.

We took a hike along Moorditch Lane out to he ‘phalarope pool’ with a small mixture of Eurasian Teal and Northern Shoveler. Two of the three Green Sandpiper were again by Hare’s Lane.

No.6 tank was rather low key but a flock of 135 Black-tailed Godwit were the largest flock of the year on this sludge tank.

A look over the horse paddock and tens of Redwing feeding on the frosty grass. Continuing along Brook Furlong Lane we looked across to the Weaver Bend and the Lum where a Little Egret was still present. The surprise of the evening was a Long-eared Owl perched out on the edge of a thicket.

Observers:JS & WSM.
