Tues 20th Jan

James has just been on the phone and gave me a count for birds on the floods at Gruinart, they were as follows, 994 Teal, 149 Wigeon, 45 Mallard, 58 Shoveler, 43 Pintail, 9 Mute Swan, 1 Black tailed Godwit, 1 Little Grebe, 2 Heron, 3 Red breasted Merganser, 1 Moorhen, 21 Greylag Geese, 3 Whooper Swan, 75 Lapwing, 28 Redshank, 15 Curlew, 2 Gadwall, 1 Shelduck and 3 Snipe. It was good to hear that the Pintail numbers were holding up, although no reports recently of anybody seeing a Green winged Teal this winter so far.
