Janet took this shot of two of the juvenile mute displaying, presumably (hopefully) they were just practicing.

Tufted Duck 4 male

Little grebe on "no swimming" pond

South shore
Wigeon c150
Rock Pipit 3 (Red Nab, Lighthouse and waterfall)
The lighthouse bird was the ringed male
Shag at least 1 probably 2 juvenile - watch the gull bottom centre at the start of this clip, it has a Whitebait, which is typical of the fish size caught here at the waterfall. A Shag makes a guest appearance towards the end of the clip, and shows just how slight they are.
