Wild and Wet

 At a very breezy and wet ARC Pit this morning the handsome drake Smew and a single redhead were at the southern end. Along with 6 Goldeneye and the Long Tailed Duck. On the New Diggings 1 Great White Egret and 6 Little Egrets.
11.30-12.30 at the fishing boats in very poor visibility, found most the Razorbills and Guillemots have moved on leaving several hundred Great Crested Grebes and a few Red Throated Divers with usual Gannets and Kittiwakes milling around off shore. The Caspian Gull and Glaucous Gull were conspicuous by there absence.
On Walland still 53 Bewick Swans at Midley, nearby 15+ Tree Sparrows in the bushes opposite the feeders, 50+ Fieldfare and 4 Mistle Thrushes at Midley Barn and 4 Marsh Harriers around the marsh.
