Walked to East Lane from SS and was shocked to see how few birds there were on the fields and the marsh. No lapwings or golden plover at all and very few wildfowl or waders, apart from a goldeneye on one of the pools. Not sure if Avian flu is a factor, or maybe they just haven't migrated here for the winter from Northern Europe because of climate change? Dire, anyway.
