Started at low Meadows aka Soddy flash where there were a few hundred Herring Gulls and Jackdaws.
12 Stock dove with Woodpigeons and a Cracking Male Merlin sat on the hedge. 50 odd Greylag Geese and plenty of Starlings.
Within the Black Headed Gulls were 2 Adult Med Gulls.
Soddy itself had 130 Snipe flushed by 2 Herons. 55 Goosander and 35 Teal, 1 Pochard 2 Goldeneye and a few Tufties.
On the small pond the Long-tailed Duck still with a Tuftie which had me looking a bit closer for a while. A few tit species, Great, Blue, Coal and Long-tailed tit. Lesser Redpoll also. Lovely looking Bullfinch.1 Buzzard.
