Elsewhere the bushes were quiet although the silence was broken by the occasional 'yaffle' from a Green Woodpecker, four Shoveler were on the Main Pond and a flock of 140 Snipe high over Greenland Lake were no doubt disturbed from the saltmarsh.

Counts from the estuary on a low high tide included 161 Brent Geese, 79 Common Gull, 47 Shelduck, 29 Wigeon and four Red-breasted Merganser.

Wildlife News: At least five Common Dolphin were showing well off the seawall.
