Diary Update #17

⛅  Tuesday 28th March 2017 ~ 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!
