Just a lazy Sunday…….chewing the cud.

A steady west wind all day, mainly high cloud with a bit of light rain early on.

Mute 8 adult 9 immature 
Moorhen 8
Coot 1
Mallard 10
Gadwall 35
Wigeon 2 (pair)
Shoveler 2 (pair)
Tufted Duck 2 male

Heysham skear towards evening low water
Pale-bellied Brent goose 42 (at least) - they were well spread this evening and the quickly fading light didn't help. There were 8 out from play area, 6 in the skear corner and a flock of 28 that were in the middle of the skear (there is absolutely no weed here) before flying off north. 
Pink-Footed goose 50 - 17:00 came from the south did a circle and headed back south. This clip shows nothing other than the light contrast at that time, still some light to the SW but black overhead when they pass over.
