A Marsh Harrier was again hunting the reed beds on the marsh.

Observer and images: Stuart Maddocks.

No.6 tank today featured 34 Common Teal and  98 Common Shelduck. 4 Shoveler were on the small pool of No.6 tank and also present there were, 1 Common Snipe and 3 Coot. Upwards of 128 Canada Goose were on the fields of No.3 tank and 42 Curlew at the far end towards No.4 tank.
The Splashing pool by No.4 tank usually is limited by the amount of water to attract and hold any large numbers of ducks so several Mallard and 4 Tufted Duck were about a typical count.
Observer: Lee Lappin.
