4-6 Ruddy Shelduck on No 6 tank were present until dusk. Good numbers of both Ringed Plover and Dunlin continue to roost and feed on No 6 tank.  Male Marsh Harrier over No 4 tank where a Green Sandpiper was located on a fresh water pool.

A Sparrowhawk and 150 Swifts were noted over No 5 tank. A Wheatear and 3 Yellow Wagtail along Lordship Marsh Lane.

Observers: Paul Crawley, Frank Duff. WSM.

4-6 Ruddy Shelduck on No 6 tank, additionally two of the birds had dark heads and were of dubious origins. The weather today was wet and windy so a good look at these birds tomorrow might shed some light on their parentage?
