The disabled access path to the viewing area is now complete and today there are still large numbers of migratory swans present. 28 Bewick's Swans and 136 Whoopers were on the fields inland of the seawall.
80 Linnets were feeding around the car park pond and there were 4 Grey Partridges near the farm.
Raptors included 2 juvenile Marsh Harriers quatering the eastern bank, 2 Merlins and a Kestrel.
Thanks to our ex-warden who braved a bitter wind to bring this report.
