This morning at the Manor

A walk around Manor Farm this morning produced a few good birds, but unfortunately yesterdays Black-tailed Godwit had departed.
 There isn't a lot of water around at these pits at the moment, but what there is held 3 Green Sandpipers and half a dozen Lapwing, plus a small flock of Black-headed Gulls. About 50 Sand Martins were flying around and these are obviously nesting nearby - whether in Bucks or over the river in Northants I'm not sure.
 4 Oystercatchers flew over calling loudly and I disturbed a Little Owl from one of the Pollarded Willows.
A Weasel that ran across the path in front of me was quite a surprise.
