R Plym, Plymouth

Some good local counts on the Plym yesterday with three Goldeneye, eight Gadwall, 25 Teal and six Red-breasted Mergansers.

Also counted were 128 Mallards, five Greenshank and three Lapwing.

In flight over Blaxton Meadow were c.60 Linnet and c.40 Skylark. These landed on Blaxton but were impossible to see in the ground cover.

Tuesday the Great Northern Diver and a Goldeneye were seen on the Cattewater from TR2.
