An Avocet flew NW at Long Nab this morning, and presumably the same was seen at Johnson's Marsh mid-afternoon before leaving south. Also past Long Nab were 2 Ravens, a Red Kite, adult Mediterranean Gull, 84 Chaffinches (south), and 179 Meadow Pipits (north). A Ring-necked Parakeet was in a garden at Bickley. Four Willow Tits in Forge Valley, where a breeding pair of Marsh Tits were observed. The Red-necked Grebe, and 2 Russian White-fronted Geese still at Burton Riggs. The Great Northern Diver was in South Bay. At Cayton/Folkton Carr; 2 Pink-footed Geese, 2 Dunlin, 22 Curlew, 3 Little Egrets. At Low Marishes; 200 Pink-footed Geese, 4 Shoveler, 24 Wigeon, 16 Teal, 40 Fieldfare, and 160 Redwing. 100 Siskins at Heron Lane, Crossgates. Shelduck Star Carr.
