It's Knot Looking Good

Yesterday while the world continued to melt like cheese Glenn had a cracking little morning at the farmlands, he found this Knot (presumably a first-winter as no sign of any summer plumage coming through and contrast between mantle and flight feathers) and also Curlew, Ring Ouzel and Redshank. 

I had the sound recorder on most of the night but failed to pick up anything apart from one Redwing call and a couple of Greylags amongst the constant noise of the usual Canada Geese and waterfowl on the lake with the background noise currently being made even worse by a flock of gulls which are now roosting on the wet grassland area. With that noise going on all night, its very difficult to pick up any migrants going over on the sonograms.
