Friday 27th October 2006

Calm today, nice and fair early on turning to rain.

Didn't I just know it would happen. The 'pond' has gone. Drained, dried or drunk by sheep, either way, it is no more. The briefest wetland in history. One day the farmer might take up Countyside Stewardship or something and get paid to leave the field wet. One day.

Of note, 1 adult Mediterranean Gull off the village, 80+ Lapwings, 200+ Golden Plovers, 2 Stonechats and a few Gannets still offshore.
