River very high and contained c40 Canada Geese, 40 Mallard, 2 Oystercatcher and a few Moorhen.
On the Sollom side, c10 Whooper Swan, 2 Greylag Goose, c50 Lapwing, few more Shelduck and the highlight were 6 *Golden Plover.
4 Buzzard and 2 Kestrel too.
* the GP takes me to 89 species for the year.
The river contained Canada Goose c60, Greylag Goose 2, Mallard c40, Moorhen 4, Oystercatcher 2.
The Sollom side fields contained Whooper Swan 30, Shelduck 20, Lapwing 75, BH Gull 10, Fieldfare c60, Redwing 2, Skylark 2. However, try as I might I couldn't find any Golden Plover, though I made no attempt to use a scope in the wind.
Generally, Kestrel 2 including Jessy, Buzzard 2, Starling12, Meadow Pipit 12
