A steady walk around late afternoon, south west wind sunny.
3 Grey Wagtails along the shore by the car park, very little on the main pool . Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers by the small pool, 37 Wigeon and18 Pochard still also 3 Gadwall and a female Ruddy Duck. Along Bixhill lane 2 Yellowhammers and 7 Linnet and 2 Red legged Partridge at the back of the ploughed field. Around the Horse paddocks it was very quite but 1 Tree Sparrow found feeding with the Chaffinchs. Back at the car park i noted a redhead Goosander had come onto the main pool, looking a little further to the western end i saw 5 more Goosanders 3 more redheads and 2 drakes.Gull numbers were down but 19 Common Gull and 26 Lesser Black backs noted.
