After work trip to the marsh and a mixture of species to keep the interest level up. The numbers of duck on No.6 tank are restricted by the amount of water within the basin so this was reflected by the smaller flock size. 59 Tufted Duck, 1 drake Pochard, 176 Common Teal and 7 Common Shelduck represented the waterfowl. 12 Ruff, 2 Golden Plover and 134 Lapwing made a typical low water (tide wise) count.
The Peregrine was again perched up high on the blue-topped chimney, a single Kestrel hovering over No.5 tank and 4 Common Buzzard were following the earth works on No.3 tank.
