A lot of rain and not much else! (Shrike seen)

Overcast, 9º (felt colder), Fresh SW, driving rain and poor visibility.

No show of anything much this afternoon/evening on the marsh, it was raining most of the time but the weather deteriorated around 16:00 and a few of us there left just after 16:30 with nothing to show other than getting wet!
A few Reed Bunting and Lesser Redpoll noted and that was about it.

The Thames is over the banks again and the marsh is flooding along with the bottom of Ferry rd.

Apparently the Shrike has been seen today on the otherside of the river upstream from Ferry rd, presumably prior to 15:00. (per Jim Deasy Oxon bird log).
