Hi Mike,

No sign of it around there on Friday so probably freshly dead- they can be quite vulnerable to starvation at this time of year and struggle to hunt in periods of persistent rain. Very sad!

Two Coots were on Tapenhall Pool yesterday
Tufted Duck in small pool between Hawford and Chatley.
Tawny Owl calling from Droitwich Woods area on Saturday night.
Male and female Blackcaps between Salwarpe and Ladywood on Friday.
Lots of winter thrushes along Copcut Lane.
Grey wagtail, the odd Meadow pipit over, etc.

Otherwise, fairly quiet and very wet!
