Flooded Fields

Showers seem to be the order of virtually everyday for the next week or more and this offers hope of sightings of waders and wildfowl in the fields which are still partly under water. The Tardoire revealed only 21 black headed gulls and about 100 lapwings today but there are reports from further west of redshanks, ringed plover and even little gull (which remarkably is not classed as a rarity in Charente).
Green woodpeckers seem to be calling everywhere and early evenings now feature the songs of several competing blackbirds.
