After work and a Friday evening visit to the marsh and a hike around No. 6 tank until dark. A summer adult Mediterranean Gull was in the roost with both Common and Black-headed Gulls. 30 Shoveler, 2 Pintail, 60 Common Shelduck and 200 Common Teal were settled in for the evening. 10 Tufted Duck were located at the Pumping Station Pool. We could find only two Whooper Swan this evening although the others could have been concealed by the hedgerow.
