They think it's all over... it is now.

Well, I call them highlights. Despite being nearly mid-April all the winter visitors were here at the beginning of the week and still 60 Fieldfares on April 13th! The winter duck that risk time on the "The Most Degraded Tributary of the River Thames" ©® are still present, Gadwall below, and below them Teal:

Well, almost nothing. Apart from a speeding Landrover. What a way to go, riding bareback with your chosen one, just a quiet country lane to cross before you make the safety of the pond... and then bang. Its all over.
