Today was my last shift for a week. There wasn't much light left when I got back form work so we went for a walk around High house wood and back home via the stanners. The light was fading so no chance of any photos. The river levels are quite high and fast flowing but just upstream from the stepping stones it is flowing slowly and this is where most of the river wildfowl are. There were 7 Mute swans, Mallard, Moorhen and 2 fine drake Goosanders. In the trees were 12 Long tailed tits. Tawny owls have beome vocal in the Abbey woods early mornings and evenings.
