Brent confusion

It wasn't clear what was happening with  pale- bellied Brent today. Just two birds seen on north side and later at Red Nab. However there were 5 later at Pott's Corner, possibly the three regular birds with the two seen earlier.

Stonechat - one in morning by road to recycling centre, one in afternoon on Middleton Nature reserve.

Rock pipit one on Ocean Edge salt marsh again, this bird is only seen when spring tides are high enough to cover the marsh.

Middleton Nature Reserve
Still one male Pochard and pair of Shoveler, but only 10 Gadwall and 1 Teal seen today.
Two Roe deer managed to flush 18 common snipe from western marsh.
Meadow pipit 4

Wigeon 159 - Red Nab
