A walk along the Weaver causeway to the bend wasn’t really that productive but a single Goldeneye and 54 Tufted Duck perhaps made the effort worthwhile. Noisy Oystercatchers and 10 Gadwall were additions to the watch.
A drive up to Marsh Farm saw a good scattering of Curlew in the fields of No.1 tank. Also present a couple of white domestic goose with the usual Greylags there. A fine male Wheatear was looking lonely perched on a wood pile close to the cattle grid at the farm.
Finally a brief watch over No.6 tank was rewarded by a male Merlin, 10 Raven, 100 Common Shelduck, 24 Common Teal and 20 Cormorant.
