      Mallard numbers exceptionally high. At least 90 on grassy areas and more hidden in trees and vegetation. No shoot here so far this winter. Pheasant numbers on Dallam Tower estate also much higher than usual for the time of year after reduced shooting. Also several Red-Legged Partridge around despite no recent releases
