Sandwiched between old boys playing with toys (model aircraft flyers) and macho shooters it was a surprise that any birds were present on No 6 tank this morning. Still each to their own
Birds that managed to stay included 64 Tufted duck, 4 Pochard, 430 Common Teal, 50 Common Shelduck and the hybrid Ruddy Shelduck.
Ringed Plover, 11 Curlew Sandpiper, 1 Little Stint, 7 Dunlin, 1 Ruff, 4 Redshank and a single Snipe.
A Peregrine was perched on the tall blue-topped chimney at Weston Point and a juvenile again over No 6 tank.
