Status Quo

This morning Wilstone was hosting the Brent Goose and Water Pipit and two Little Egrets. Startops held the Smew and Marsworth had two Bitterns walking the edges of the reeds and also in flight.

This evening the Wilstone gull roost was more noteworthy for its wildfowl than the gulls. It seems that most if not all of the diving duck that spend the day on Startops fly to Wilstone to roost. Surprisingly the Smew flew into Wilstone with them. Also at dusk a drake Goosander flew in from the north.
