Another swallow and geese remain

The Ross's goose was again amongst 450-500 pinkfeet, as was the barnacle goose this evening. The geese were spread very thinly over the marsh this evening and many were feeding in furrows.
A lone swallow (my second this year) was feeding near Freeman's Pools before it headed off up river and two small flocks of sand martin moved through as did half a dozen meadow pipit.
2 little egrets were around the marsh and pools.
A sprinkling of pied wags were in the stubble fields though there were no whites among them.
The pair of grey partridge were still near the Walled Meadow.
A couple of chiffchaff were singing in Freeman's Wood and the tufted duck pair remain on the pools.
