After yesterday's torrential rain today saw clear skies and it was warm if you could escape the northerly breeze. A hawfinch was in the woods close to La Poterie as was a short toed treecreeper and a couple of nuthatches. The plains were full of skylarks and linnets as usual but there are still no signs of any branblings among the chaffinch flocks. Greenfinches seem to have gone off the radar for a while and the four goldfinches which I saw near La tache were the first I've seen for a few days.
The Bonnieure river was over its banks at Chasseneuil yesterday.
