Spent a couple of hours at Amwell this morning. Temperatures have dropped considerably over the last few days and the northerly airflow was particularly unpleasant at the watch point.
The two Redshank pairs were very visible and vocal, but there are still no plovers. Bill had a Little Ringed earlier in the week, and there was a report of one today-presumably very brief as no-one else saw it. There are still some wintering duck-a few Wigeon, and nine Goldeneye though the latter appear to be getting restless so they will be off any day now.
 A single Green Sandpiper spent the morning on the main island and was the only other bird of note.
