Main sighting: Common Gull
Goldcrest contact call, 2 reed buntings, pair of stonechats, female sparrowhawk and greylag geese. Hide one – 5 shoveler, 1 shelduck and approx 150 starlings flying past. Hide three – 1 common gull past. 9 species of birds huddled up along the bank including 28 shoveler, 10 teal, 4 gadwall, mallards, 63 wigeon, 4 cormorants, 1 dunlin, 1 common redshank and a Canada goose. Mute swan cygnet dead in the grass opposite the hide. Unusual first sighting for me of the redshank walking over the back of a roosting female mallard to get to the front.
