Charleton marsh

Stopped off at Beesands where 7 Red head Goosanders remain and 2 Velvet Scoters on sea, close in for a change! In a field nearby were c. 360 Lapwing along with 200+ Redwing.
At Charleton, 4 f. Scaup out in the bay together with 2 Black necked Grebes and 3 Mergansers. Struggled to count the Wigeon, around 440 and 102 Teal. Dunlin numbered about 320, 22 Grey Plover and 7 Knot.
