A single brambling in the garden was the first for weeks. Almost as exciting were two, possibly three, green finches the most seen for months.

On the marshes 7 white-fronted geese still present near the lagoon (8 were seen last Sunday). On the lagoon 4 pochard were with about 6 tufted ducks, with a further 8 tufted ducks on various pools. Lots of wigeon, teal and shoveller scattered over the many wet flashes and pools together with a few black-tailed godwits and curlew.
