Rough day for a count

I knew I should have undertaken the WeBS counts yesterday. A strong easterly today killed most action with a lot of things hiding away in the sallows. Wigeon were non existent, Teal numbered one, the Long-tailed Duck was re-found and the Brambling were still present on the feeders prompting me to buy another sack of seed. The light Southerlies of the two previous days did bring me eight Sand Martin though, my earliest record so quite chuffed with that.

The more sheltered location of Pendarves Lake was up next and the two Mute Swan have returned. There's always a pair here during breeding season, I wonder where they overwinter.
