    West Shore/Middleton Wader Roost.
    40 Brent Geese feeding on the marsh, a good sign, I think the grass length is to their liking, is this looking good for future years!
    Lots of Curlew, Knot, Dunlin, Grey Plover, Redshank, Wigeon, Shelduck and Oyster Catcher, big flock of Linnet and Twite, no count due to heavy snow falling and resembling an Arctic landscape with the tide flooding the marsh, much different to the norm.
