I had another look in at 7pm. there was about 50 Lapwings Mallard numbers were up to about 30, but nowhere near the numbers flighting (new word) in compared to the other night when John and myself were up there, it was a continuous stream of Mallard flighting in. By the time we left there could have been close on 100 Mallard on the flood. The best thing about last nights visit was the amount of Pied Wagtails milling about all over the grass and around the flood, and there was one or two Whites mixed in. They were feeding around the horses where there would be more insects being disturbed, then one of the horses snorted and about 50 wags lifted off and headed South West, even so there was still a few milling about on the field and on the flood.

otherwise you can't see a thing.
