Pintail – 17th September

A female Pintail was on the Slurry Lagoon today, along with two juvenile Shelduck. The flock of Lesser Black-backed Gulls topped 1,000 and included four Herring Gulls, a Great Black-backed Gull and a Yellow-legged Gull. A flock of eighteen Wigeon flew over in the evening, going south.

There are still some Swallows feeding young in a nest under the Railway Bridge and a Reed Warbler sang briefly from the reed bed. PS.
