A quick visit this morning was disappointing as there was hardly any movement or sounds. The scrape was totally overwhelmed by Greylag Geese with c170 occupying all but the deeper water. Apart from a few Mallard there were three Green Sandpiper, two Oystercatcher and two Grey Heron. A flock of c60 Lapwing flew over South West.

One of the Herons was exhibiting some strange behaviour, I thought it was trying ti pick up what looked like an Eel just off the island:

But it obviously wasn’t:

No not an Eel!
No not an Eel!

Going where?

Now where are we going?
Now where are we going?

Now that’s where it should be!

That's where it should be!
That’s where it should be!

Some of the Greylag:

Also a pair of Dingy Footman caught my eye:
