I spent the last hour of daylight around No.6 tank this evening. The usual Common Teal, Shoveler and Mallard were on the water with c20 Common Snipe and 6 Black-tailed Godwit and 2 Kestrel were hunting the reed bed and a mixed flock of finches were made up of Linnet, Goldfinch and Chaffinch were foraging on the bank.
No.3 tank had c50 Pink-footed Goose grazing with the Canada Goose herd and several Curlew passed overhead.
The Whooper Swan herd could be seen in the distant fields alongside the M56.
