        The field where the feeding tables are located was being ploughed and drilled when I arrived at 10.00 am on Sunday 9th and the tables moved into the long grass. Only two Mallard drakes and one Blue tit in evidence, the former possibly because they’d over-indulged to the point of being temporarily flightless.
