BLACK-TAILED GOSWIT at 100 Acre Field, Bedford

Despite 98% frozen, undoubted highlight was a BLACK-TAILED GODWIT. Over twice at different locations both times heading for the river. I have assumed it was the same bird and 111 of the Willington Barnacle Flock in the wheat field east of the old STW beds. Octagon Farm 100% frozen just a few BHG and 5 Grey Herons. Common Redshank heard calling over the STW but not seen mainly due to the misty conditions (Nick Cook)
