1 Wheatear on the dung heaps on No 1 tank, Marsh Harrier hunting on No 6 tank and a Yellow Wagtail flying off No 6 towards No 3 tank. The only other interest was a Hare on one of the ploughed fields.

The Weaver Bend and estuary saw a wild and blustery evening with watery eyes blurring the vision but nevertheless, 150 Common Shelduck, 60 Tufted Duck, 4 Gadwall with Swallow, House, Sand Martin and Common Swift giving under focusing views. A Grasshopper Warbler singing from Redwall reedbed and a flighty Cuckoo were always interesting additions to the log.
