Quick check on the pools around theMarsh Farm this morning ended in disappointment with only 3 Pochard, 2 Tufted Duck and 12 Gadwall on the main pool, with consolation of a Firecrest in the bushes on the way back.

Very quiet at Climping Beach apart from c. 450 Brent Geese and a Kestrel hovering over Cudlow field west of the car park and the Kumlien's Gull showing very well from the Lifeboat Station.

More shots of the Kumlien's Gull

A stroll up the river from the Tesco roundabout late afternoon produced 8 Teal, 2 Curlew, 2 Grey Heron 12 Redshank 6 Redwing and about 60 Meadow Pipit flushed up walking across one field.
