Mid morning visit to the canal view point to overlook the now wet scrape. Still about 80 Canada geese that seem to be a permanent feature. However the high tide roost held lots of birds including curlew, whimbrel (6+), black-tailed godwit, bar-tailed godwit, ruff (6), dunlin (43) and curlew sandpiper (1). The waterfowl included one little grebe, mallard (8), shoveller (4) and a few teal. No sign of the two hobby that were over the lagoon yesterday afternoon.
In the canal side trees a few chiffchaff and a few long-tailed tits.
