"Rushy
There were 250 Bewicks overnight with a few new arrivals this morning promising to be great yet again on the afternoon feeds at 16.00. The ice has melted sufficently to allow the 400 Pochard to get to the open water in front of the Peng. They might only be introduced birds but the 600 Greylags and Canadas look great and bring a lot of life to the Pond.

South Lake
A great set of ducks here with 330 Teal, 70 Gadwall, 80 Wigeon and 140 Pochard.

Holden Tower
Produced a few suprises this morning with an adult Gannet coming in on the tide and floating back out again. There was a report of 25 probable Snow Buntings moving north along the Dumbles and a Woodcock provided fantastic views for a lucky few on the out side of the walkway near the Knott Hide.

Kingfisher Hide
The Whitefronts are showing well here this morning at least 400 present but large parts of the flock are out of view. The bird feeders are very busy. Lots of all the usual candidates including one Brambling, a Great Spotted Woodpecker and a frantic flock of about 30 Long Tailed Tits invading the feeders for a few minutes."
