I managed to catch up with the Pintail at Arcot this afternoon as it slept on the edge of the island in the NW corner along with a female Shoveler, 5 Gadwal and  5 Wigeon. The Garganey was feeding just off the island towards the reeds.

Also I saw a grey and green stripey juvenile Green Woodpecker probing between the cracks of the pavement along Bassington Lane. It was on the pavement in front of one of the factories that seems to have no name, not an area I have seen one before, not the usual area near Bassington NR.
