    At Doddington this morning mute swan numbers down to 9. Checking on old records, in some years the numbers in Nov and Dec do go down to less than 10 so not sure whether this low number is due entirely to avian flu or a natural reduction as birds move to other sites as well. Counts of less than 10 of pochard, gadwall, wigeon, shoveler and teal; 26 tufted but no goldeneye today. The coot total was 740. As I was leaving 2 skeins of pink-footed geese, total of 90, flew over, heading west

    Queen’s Park – 1400
    6 M 9 F Goosanders, Great Spotted Woodpecker near nest site, 40 Canada Geese, and only 1 Mute Swan now, the male has been very quiet of late and not been seen eating any food and was taken away by the RSPCA and eventually put down, at this stage not thought to be Avian Flu. The female seems to be OK and is eating fine.
