    Some nice big pools in the fields held:
    104 Wigeon
    73 Teal
    5 Pintail
    14 Mallard
    3 Mute Swan (plus 17 more in nearby fields)
    40 Lapwing flew S towards the moor
    4 Fieldfare flew N

    By the river :
    667 Oystercatcher
    45 Curlew
    1 Little Egret
    1 Shelduck
    4+ Greylag

    The Snab is a shadow of its former self, half of it having been drained, so the only birds on it were a Little Egret and 2 Shelduck

    90 Rooks and 80 Jackdaws gathered in the fields at 5pm before flying Towards Claughton
