Monday 28th September
A brief evening visit to look at the estuary corner found the Snow Goose (Cat. E) again present among 251 Canada Goose. The year's highest count of 956+ Wigeon, also 128 Teal, 25 Mute Swan and two Pintail roosted out on the waters. Regular waders were noted present and of the few counts taken of other waterbirds, these were as about as expected, such as 30 Great Black-backed Gull, three Lesser Black-backed Gull and three Mediterranean Gull (2 ad, 1 fw). Ten Little Egret and three Grey Heron roosting in the saltmarshes were also typical numbers of recent days.
