What should be a 40 min journey to work took 2hr 20 min this morning! I detoured, believing going through Thornage would not be a good idea, so went via Saxthorpe and hit a standstill north of Edgefield, as cars refused to climb the hill.
Whilst waiting two Buzzards mewed as they circled out of their roost and off to forage for food. A Marsh Tit 'P-choo'd'(?), previously a Barn Owl was seen again ghostly quartering N of Wood Norton.
An early return home produced a small skein of Pink-footed Goose flying west. 4 Mandarin flew over Guist Bridge, cruising down into the river, out of view. This is the largest number I have seen at this site. Another (this time Route list bird) Buzzard was seen soaring over Sennowe Park.
