Popped up the res for a little while before work hoping that yesterday's Red-crested Pochards would still be around. Unfortunately they'd gone overnight and nothing much had replaced them. I did notice that there seemed to be a lot of Gadwall so proceeded to count them and ended up with a new site record: 447!
Tried various places in the North Marsh for Woodcock after two were seen there yesterday but no luck with those either. As I walked back over the cricket pitch with Andrew Verrall we noticed a big commotion and found ourselves looking at our second Common Buzzard in four days - this one being chased by a big group of Crows and Magpies. Eventually it gained height, all but one Crow had given up, then flew off west.
