A Barnacle Goose with Greylag Geese on College Lake BBOWT on Tuesday relocated to Marsworth/Wilstone next day and still remains present, with up to 5 Red-crested Pochards still in residence and broods of both Little and Great Crested Grebe (including 7 of the latter). Two family parties of SPOTTED FLYCATCHER are about, including 4 on Wilstone and 5 on Marsworth.
