Today the first Shoveler, a male and a female, arrived back on the Slurry Lagoon. There were also five Little Grebes and four Oystercatchers flew over. SC.
This morning there were seven Red-crested Pochard on the Slurry Lagoon. Also present were the two male Wigeon and a male Shoveler. The Gadwall still has all eleven of her ducklings and a Mallard now has five. There is still no sign of the Pochard ducklings though. Two recently fledged Common Terns were dipping for insects from the water surface. PS.
A Green Sandpiper was present on the Slurry lagoon in the afternoon.
