another very quiet morning. modest numbers of Redwings, Starlings and Woodpigeons moved over early, but the regular surges of activity in the skies now seem more than a couple of weeks away..... Duck numbers are a little higher, with Gadwalls, Tufted Ducks, Pochards, Shovelers and Ruddy Ducks all slightly up; Little Grebes continue their comparitively numerous presence.
