After yesterday’s rain there was much flooding either side of the river from Betley Bridge to Eatons Farm, and this had drawn in some decent amounts of wildfowl. There were approximately 300 Canada Geese, 9 Egyptian Geese, 80 Wigeon and and a dozen Shoveler. There was also a Kingfisher perched in a tree overlooking the swollen river just down from Betley Bridge.

On the way to the Levels in the morning there was also a Goldcrest and a pair of Bullfinches on the Downslink north of Bishop Park. (PC)
