6 small waders (not Dunlin) >N defied identification came through so fast over the water and straight across Oxenhop Moor. Shame there's no shoreline to draw them in to rest and feed

2 B H Gulls >SE
1 Swallow >S
2 Swifts  >NW
2 Kestrels
3 Wheatears
A Blackbird singing on a post on the top road - get down in the valley !!!
6 Greylags including the white individual sitting it out on the moor

Nice try Dave, just proved again that these conditions are best for birds if not for birders.
