The third synchronised Devon Goosander roost count of the winter  took place mainly at dawn on 28 January, with three sites counted at dusk on the 27th. Of the twenty-four sites covered, 16 held at least one roosting bird. The total of 169 (60 males) was almost identical to the that obtained in both January and December 2022, and included 50 on Dartmoor. The main sites were Lower Tamar Lake with 41, followed by Meeth (23), Avon Dam (22), Blackhill Quarry (21) , Venford (19) and Shobrooke (15).  The total should be regarded as a (slight?) underestimate to allow for birds present in the county, but not roosting at one of the known sites on 27/28 January. Thanks to all who took part.
