The Water Rails were on fine form, squealing and scolding each other, three in total. I watched one for about forty minutes and got within a couple of meters, amazing birds. Other highlights, Smew still present, along with Tufted Ducks, Wigeon, Goldeneye, and Gadwall and 2 Snipe on the island. Wildfowlers’ was frozen, and the Flood was void of birds due to farming activities. Black-tailed Godwit 106 at Marsh Point.
