It was good to see the pools holding so many broods. There were at least four Pochard broods in addition to Mallard, Gadwall and Shoveler broods. The Mute Swans have seven youngsters and there were also broods of Great Crested and Little Grebes. A single Garganey was found plus a single female Ruddy Duck.

Small groups of Swift headed east and were almost certainly migrants rather than local birds. They were not feeding as they flew through. A Yellow Wagtail was also present plus the pair of local Marsh Harrier.

There were seventy plus Common Scoter on the sea and a few Great Crested Grebe. Both Sandwich and Common Terns were fishing and there were three seals present.
