Cholsey marsh: a brief visit.

Sunny spells, 6º, light to fresh WSW, getting colder.

A brief visit to Cholsey marsh this afternoon the water has receded and the marsh is draining again and the Thames water level has dropped back to just below the banks. However, the path is only navigable with wellies.

Very quiet there today and did not stay for the roost as it was getting cold and I did not have the appropriate clothing, the only bird of note was a Wigeon that flew upriver, circled the marsh and disappeared behind some trees in the distance so did not see if it continued upriver or dropped in to a flooded area.

Two Barn Owl hunting at dusk, one on the marsh and another over a nearby field. (Thanks to Paul Rainsden for the info).
