Ferry Pool: A Raven over this morning. (PH)
North Wall: Windy, but clear this morning. Water levels on the Breach Pool are again very low, though it contained 144 Black-tailed Godwits, 4 Redshank, 1 Spotted Redshank, 170 Teal, 28 Mallard, 12 Wigeon and 1 Water Rail, and there was a Rock Pipit along the wall.
There were c.400 Wigeon on Bremere Rife and 134 Curlew on the back fields. (JDW)
Medmerry: Ham: A large flock of c.2000 Brent Geese contained the Black Brant late morning at least (PH)
Later, SR was unable to locate it, but the as-yet unidentified grey goose sp was present; she managed a couple of distant record shots but as will be seen these are inconclusive, so we await a better view and photo in due course. There was also one Brent carrying an orange ring on its left leg but it couldn't be seen clearly. (SR)
