Mudbank

 
Greenshank - Mudbank
 
Some nice bits of pieces off Mudbank and some decent counts. Totals included the wintering Long-tailed Duck, 4 Goldeneye (all female types) a Guillemot paddling purposefully upriver (probably the individual that Terry saw in the marina yesterday afternoon), 230+ Pintail (the highest number I've had for some time), 1 Greenshank, c120+ Redshank, c100+ Dunlin, several Turnstone, 7+ Ringed Plover, 35 Grey Plover, 3 Knot, 10+ Great Crested Grebe, 4 Pale-bellied Brent Goose, 4 Teal, 12+ Red-breasted Merganser, several Wigeon, a few Shelduck and Brent Geese and a Kingfisher.
