A cold, but sunny start to the day winds light from the north. 11 Willow Warblers were singing along with Reed Warbler, Willow Tit and Coal Tit amongst others. Herring Gulls rarely come down here, so it was especially pleasing to see 3 immatures having a wash and brush up on the wader scrape, before perching on the new goal post we put up last Thursday.
