Goosemoor and Bowling Green Marsh

A single female/immature Bearded Tit at Goosemoor, plus Water Rail feeding out on open mud.

At Bowling Green, 16 Gadwall, 13 Greylag Geese, Pintail and Green Sandpiper. Also of interest were two female Shovelers that dived persistently for about 15 minutes, with one or two Gadwall in association. Gadwall often taken vegetation brought to the surface by diving Coots, but I've never seen them accompanying diving Shovelers before!
