We took a clockwise walk around No.6 tank stopping off to look across Lordship Marsh towards the fields by the M56. The winter swans were present but no obvious signs of the family of Bewick’s Swan as off the last two days.
There was little of note on No.3 tank apart from some a Great Egret being the more noteworthy of my sightings along with Eurasian Wigeon, Eurasian Teal and a Western Marsh Harrier hunting the fields.
A Common Chiffchaff was contact calling from the banks while the roost of harriers numbered four birds.
There were plenty of ducks on No.6 tank with a slight reduction of Common Pochard down to 28 birds.
