An evening visit produced the eclipse drake Garganey with 20 Common Teal, 242 Shelduck, 64 Tufted Duck and 25 Pochard added to the increasing duck numbers. 4 Great Crested Grebe, 34 summer Black-tailed Godwit and the return of 4 Avocet. Both Little Ringed and Ringed Plovers were disputing territory. A Green Sandpiper was keeping a typically low profile.

200 Black-headed Gulls on No 6 tank contained 15 juvenile birds presumably dispersed from the Blakemere, Delamere breeding site?
