Sunday morning saw Gail and I stretch our legs and have a walk down to the estuary. Heading down the 'Hawthorn Tunnel' we just notched up Long-tailed Tit and Song Thrush before reaching the estuary. There was a big tide today but it hadn't yet covered the saltmarsh, but it had covered all the mudflats, so wildfowl were few and far between.
On the reservoir were 16 Tufted Ducks, five Goldeneyes, 15 Coots, six Little Grebes, a male Pochard and a male Red-breasted Merganser.
We did have some wildlfowl in the form of 97 Wigeons, just five Teal and three Whooper Swans that flew over. It was now time to head back to the car but a pleasant walk had been had nevertheless!
