It's very Quiet

I took a stroll around Manor Farm today and it was as quiet bird-wise as I've ever known it.
There were 2 Little Egrets in the car-park, - these are perhaps becoming the most human-tolerant of this species I know as they stand just across the river waiting for you to pass before flying back over and standing on the path again - another bird was on the Quicksand Pit alongside a Grey Heron.
Up on the main Pit a fairly large Gull flock was split half and half Black-headed and Common, 7 Cormorants, 2 Mute Swans, a few Mallard and a pair of Goosander were about all that was on show.
A flock of around 100 Fieldfare were on the meadow. These birds seem to have appeared everywhere today, so maybe they're on their way back up North.
