The synchronised dawn Goosander roost count last Saturday 16 December located 206 birds on 14 sites across Devon, with zero counts at 10 other sites visited. The highest counts were at Meeth Quarry (54), Lower Tamar Lake (39), Blackhill Quarry and Avon Dam (both 24) and Venford (18). The overall  proportion of adult males at 41% was higher than usual. Thanks to all participants.
