Viewed 1430-1700Hrs

The Black Brant was in the field near canal car-park mid-afternoon with c450 Dark Belly Brent Geese and opposite were 3 snipe close-by with one showing really well. The male Merling appeared about 1630 as the sun disappeared sat on the fence where i was looking the night before so i moved down to that position hoping for better shots and it flew up and sat on the fence where i just come from but was a little distant for any good photos, the video i took wasn't any better than what i took yesterday.
