London's soundscape is changing with seven out of London's top ten most common garden birds dropping in population over the last decade.
More than 25 areas of London are on flood alert again tonight due to a combination of heavy rain and high spring tides.
After weeks of rainy weather it's now official - it is the wettest January for more than a century.
People in flooded areas have "nothing to panic about" from contaminated water if they keep washing their hands Public Health England (PHE) says.
Debbie Stark, a consultant with Public Health England's Devon, Cornwall and Somerset Centre, said: "Advice has been given regularly to local people about minimising any health risk.
"This includes avoiding contact with flood water, washing hands and food preparation surfaces and not eating food that has touched flood water."
She was responding to claims that flood water in Somerset is contaminated with bacteria.
The Environment Agency has issued a number of flood alerts as the rain continues:
The tidal River Crane at Twickenham
River Thames from Hampton and Thames Ditton to Teddington
Lower River Roding including Redbridge, Woodford, Wanstead, Ilford, East Ham and Barking
The River Crane at Hillingdon, Southall, Cranford, Feltham and Twickenham
Tidal Thames riverside from Putney Bridge to Teddington Weir
River Thames at Trowlock Island

Today, tomorrow and into the weekend we are expecting heavy rainfall which will continue to raise the threat of flooding to communities in the south east.
We are monitoring the situation very closely as river and groundwater levels across the South East remain high and responsive, and standing water remains in some flood plains. As high spring tides are also forecast over the weekend we will be keeping a close eye on the developing situation around the coast.

We urge communities to prepare in advance by signing up for free flood warnings and to take action if they receive one.
