The flooding in Station Road has started to fall and the road is passable in tall wellies.

At Turf this morning there was a varied collection of geese. Hundreds of Canada geese with 16 brent geese and one barnacle goose. Also single greylag goose, snow goose and bar-headed goose.

Elsewhere more Canada geese together with large numbers of teal and pintail, and smaller numbers of shoveller, wigeon and mallard. At least 10 cattle egrets and a similar number of little egrets. Not a lot of waders although plenty of curlew, one whimbrel, about 30 redshank and a few black-tailed godwit. Lots of black-headed gulls and at least 40 common gulls.

A kestrel and a sparrow hawk were close to the storage lagoon.
