Briefly near pier but lost. Scope view revealed a yellow darvic ring on left leg and metal on right. No time to read number. Presumably bird from Staines moor ringed by Colne Valley ringers? Key holders only.

Possible
A single bird flew over my head calling. It was subtly different from the Meadow Pipits nearby and I suspected it might have been a Water Pipit. It flew to the SE corner of the the area where there is a wet area but I was unable to search for it.
