What joy, Spoonbill patch tick, maybe new record tick will check. The bird flew up from the mud just north of Gull Bank then headed down river to the Conder/Lune conduit where I scoped it again. Back on the patch a skittish Green Sandpiper was on the Flood along with a dozen or so Pied Wagtails with young, the adults still feeding them. Freeman's Pool saw Coot with young. In the fields I was pleased to see a few Rooks, a Buzzard overhead and on the marsh Greylag numbers increasing.
