I visited Wilstone first thing and last thing today. First thing the Water Pipit was still by the jetty so looking good for next year. There was also a male Goosander and six Pintails (4 males). This evening there were 3 male and 2 redhead Goosander and yes they were actually on the water and not flying over so we may be lucky tomorrow.
Surprisingly the gull roost was comfortably a 1000+ birds, but nothing exceptional. They were stood on the ice on the section between the jetty and Cemetery Corner, but as always some just dropped in, washed, and then moved on (Roy Hargreaves).
