    Lots of activity this morning. Small group of sand martins over the marsh/flood with the odd swallow. Both little ringed and ringed plovers present. Chiff chaffs singing everywhere, and spotted one willow warbler. Other species included gadwall, teal, shelduck, lapwing, redshank, oystercatcher, little egret, reed bunting, skylark.

    Up to four Little Ringed Plovers interacting today.

    Eight Swallows over The Flood (A14) at one point.

    Small numbers Siskins, redpoll sp, Sand Martins and Meadow Pipits moving N but not counted.

    At Fairfield, 25 Linnets, two Stock Doves and seven Reed Buntings at the LDBWS feeding area. The Fairfield Association is keen to keep our station going to the year’s end and are donating some seed money.
