Two white Snow Geese were at the head of a Skein of PF geese leaving the reserve at 09:15 this morning they were heading in a SSW direction.
Also there was a Merlin in the centre grounds yesterday PM, also a tree creeper this morning and the Kingfisher has been fairly regular from the centre too.
Shoveller numbers have increased as have pintail and there are 1,000 + wigeon on the reserve.
