Another cold and frosty morning. The marsh has been breached again at Mansands (right). But this does bring birds from the vegetation out in the open to feed on the mud more, with 4 Water rails calling, but only 1 seen (right), 29 Teals, 8 Mallards, 8 Gadwalls, 2 male Shovelers, 2 Coots, 11 Moorhens and 67 Snipes. Also a Cetti's Warbler at the top end of the marsh.
