Firstly, Shelduck numbers had increased to 4, with 3 males and a female. Secondly, a Green Sandpiper was heard calling and flew over from the east continuing westwards - possibly new, but probably one of the local wintering birds. Thirdly, a Dunlin appeared amongst the Lapwing flock and was watched feeding for a while before it seemed to depart when the Lapwing flushed (as they always do!)
|Second of the year|
Later on a Tawny Owl was heard calling from near the car park, which is a new one for the year.
