A brief visit at dusk had the same species of duck present on No 6 tank. 400 Common Teal, 43 Shoveler, 20 Tufted Duck, 16 Wigeon, 6 Pochard and 50 Mallard.

1200 Lapwing and 500 Golden Plover were disturbed from their roost with no obvious reason, some of the Lapwings return but the Goldies left and went out to the score? 26 Common Snipe flew up and settled back onto the tank.

10 Raven were loitering on No 5 tank. 1,000 Starlings were gathering to roost in the reedbed on No 6 tank.

Observers: Arthur Harrison, Sparky and WSM.
