I exercised my right to exercise in complete isolation, so after 7 days in work I cycled down to the marsh and celebrated the female Long-tailed Duck 100th day staycation with a ride around No.6 tank.  Ducks were present with c300 Common Shelduck, a small number of Common Goldeneye, c200 Northern Shoveler, 40 Eurasian Teal, 145 Tufted Duck and 4 Common Pochard.

The ‘phalarope pool’ had 7 Black-tailed Godwit, numerous Eurasian Teal, Gadwall and Mallard.The Whooper Swan herd may have flown to the icy far north, but a Little Ringed Plover was fresh in and a couple of Western Marsh Harrier were about.  Further on the pools on No.3 tank had 40 Black-tailed Godwit, Eurasian Teal, Northern Shoveler, Common Shelduck and Black-tailed Godwit.
