30.12.17. Birdlog.

A walk around No.6 tank this afternoon  started with Fieldfare and Redwing  moving along Moorditch Lane with a Sparrowhawk close by. A single juvenile Mute Swan was in a ditch with the rest of the family feeding by the blue slurry tank.  Also in the same field were several hundred lapwing and c130 Curlew.

A flock of c150 Pink-footed Goose circled Lordship Marsh and then moved on to the estuary followed by 20 Black-tailed Godwit. The Whooper Swan herd was feeding close to Spring Farm. Again there were big numbers of Shoveler and Common Pochard on the waters of six with Mallard, Common Shelduck, Common Teal, Gadwall and Pintail  A mile long line of Lapwing stretched out along the salt marshes by Marsh Farm spooked by one of the Marsh Harrier  hunting in the area.
