During the morning I walked around Holborough marsh.Although it was better than forecast,there was a cold northerly blowing which kept the smaller birds low.

Along the river I saw (3) Shelduck (8) Teal (6) Mallard (30+) Black-headed Gulls (2) G B B Gulls (6) Herring (2) Common Gulls (3) Moorhen (2) Coot and (1) Redshank.A Little Egret,which later flew over to the scrape,was feeding in the southern field along with (1) Heron (4) teal (3) Mallard and (3) Pheasant.A Water Rail called from the reed bed,where I was lucky,what with the strong wind blowing to have a fleeting glimpse of a BEARDED TIT.In the Northern field which is looking nice and wet at the moment there was (25) Teal (4) Gadwall (2) Shoveler (2) Snipe (1) Heron (8) Moorhen (2) Lapwing and (4) Pheasant.
A field which in the past has been used for growing arables held a mixed feeding flock of at least (150) Fieldfare and Redwing.
