8 Black-tailed Godwit and 2 Greenshank on the scrape this morning.

In the reserve dozens of small birds - mostly in a big Tit flock - Blue Tits, Great Tits, Long-tailed Tits, Bullfinches, Chaffinches, Goldfinches, Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps. 2 little Egrets over.

There is a huge flock of Canada Geese at Sherpa Marsh in the evenings - most of which seem to move over onto the Great Field Area late evening, On Monday night they were all spooked and flew off towards the estuary. I estimated 400+.
