Sherpa Marsh

Had a walk around the marsh this morning, sort of first of the autumn (when was summer?) and turned up 4 Black-tailed Godwit, 120+ Canada Geese, 1 Common Sandpiper, 1 Snipe, and 16+ Yellow Wagtails, don't often see them here in late summer/autumn.
In the Velator reserve a Wigeon on the pond. Peregrine half-heartedly chasing Woodpigeons over the marsh area. 2 Sparrowhawks and 4 Buzzards.
