Another fantastic day on the reserve. Long-tailed duck and water pipit still on Marian Mawr pools and red-breasted goose, 18 Greenland white-fronted geese and a spotted redshank on the Breakwater fields.
 The Greenland white-fronts were only 50 metres away-amazing views. A lone chiffchaff called from the reedbed. Red was also out today and got these and an additional Med gull and hen harrier. With a supporting cast of peregrine, green and common sandpipers and kingfishers as well as excellent views of peregrine, teal, wigeon, shoveller and pintail the reserve is having an excellent run of form.
