There were plenty of Black-headed (265) and Common Gull (51) watched settling on the water for a quick brush up and splash before they eventually headed out to the Mersey estuary for their nightly roost. A bit of a clear out of duck today with 9 Mallard, 453 Common Teal and 16 Shoveler , also 163 Black-tailed Godwit.
