Friday 4th March 2011 - Afternoon

14:30 > 15:30
Sun, calm 6c

Three Oystercatchers were the highlight of a perimeter walk around the site. A constant pair and later a single picking around in the ever expanding mud. Not to be outdone three Green Sandpiper present too this afternoon. Elsewhere in and around the water a lone Little Egret and a dozing group of around 50 gulls, mostly Commons but with a couple of Lesser Black Backed and a Herring thrown in.

As for wildfowl no Goosander today but the steady flock of around 15 Wigeon still grazes while on Back Brook a group of six Teal his themselves away.

Away from the water a hadful of Siskins were found with a pair of Yellowhammer and a building flock of winter thrush, mostly Fieldfare were out on the flood meadow.
