Tongwell and Olney

This morning a brief visit to Tongwell was disrupted by a major Fire Brigade operation. It looked as though someone had fallen through the ice.
Still lots of ducks on an adjacent ice hole though. 2 Goosander that flew off, but several Mallard, Gadwall, Tufteds, Pochard a Shoveler and a smart male Red-crested Pochard remained.

At Olney meadows it was very quiet with 4 Little Grebes and 3 Pochards the best birds seen.

Over the road at Olney Mill 6 Goosander and 3 Wigeon were on the river.

  1. Apparently it was someones dog that unfortunately perished. Seemed an awful lot of resources to try and save a dog. Can only say that it was a good training excercise.
