Cool N>3 increasing and turning to SW>4 by 0800 hrs Blue skies and sunshine  ,  NO FOG !!

A real lively session this morning with wall to wall birds making me wonder which to check out next.
Curlews are suddenly over running the area as well as Lapwings and Meadow Pipits.
Walking down by the boat house first thing I could see several Teal on the banking new in from last nights visit but very mobile when they clocked me from some distance away. A count of 23 was good when they landed on the water but at the far NE corner before moving back to the centre near the east banking.
Last nights Nyjer seed remained untouched so at least I know the geese are,nt taking it.
