A flock of 320 Black-tailed Godwit on No.6 tank always attract other waders to drop in or joined them. The group of 480 Lapwing had found the relative safety of the godwits pressence suitable for their need of roosting and preening but there was low numbers of Dunlin (7) and Redshank () but two juvenile Curlew Sandpiper were more than welcome.
Ducks can be relied upon to make up the numbers with Mallard reaching 23 while Pintail have increased markedly to 29 birds. Also 9 Common Shelduck, 135 Shoveler, 70 Common Teal and 68 Tufted Duck were present.
