~ Continued the search for new arrivals but a quieter day with little change at Brandon Marsh! That said I still managed a year~tick ✅
and a Brandon year~tick ✅
in the form of my first Swallow and a couple of Egyptian Geese
, the latter an irregular visitor to the reserve.
|Black-tailed Godwit ~ Teal Pool|
The Black-tailed Godwit
remained for its 2nd day and a couple of Little-ringed Plover
were actually displaying on Tern Island, that's the smaller of the two larger islands on East Marsh pool.
|A brace of Egyptian Geese on Tern Island!|
A Willow Tit
was also heard at the junction of Central Marsh and River Pool track but I never made contact. I'm also happy to report the I spotted the injured Goosander
in his usual spot on Swallow Pool, a relief as I feared for his well being having not seen him on Sunday!
