Decided to got to the Levels today, but when we arrived there the weather changed, dull and horrible, and rain. So, Catcott and the hide was the best idea. There was a flock of Redwings and Fieldfares in the trees along the track to the car park. The usual ducks there, Pintail, Wigeon, Teal and Shoveler mainly. There were still quite a lot of Snipe around too. Only slightly odd bird was a Great Spotted Woodpecker, which flew across the open water!
The weather was still crap, so we decided to go back via Chew. The Sharp-tailed Sandpiper showed again with the Dunlin flock. Two Black-tailed Godwits were in the same area, but no sign of the Dowitchers. The Egyptian Goose was still in Herons Green bay.
