Broomhill Flash mid AM- Present were 2 Cormorant, 1a+3j Mute Swan, 26 Canada Geese, 57 Gadwall, 13 Tufted Duck, 6 Teal, 4 Mallard, 61 BH Gull, 1 Snipe and 6 Red Legged Partridge. A distant skein of 250+ geese flew west beyond Catt Hill at 10.25am. The loose skein suggested Pink Feet to observers in the hide but it was also noted that the birds appeared to have longish necks. Anyone else pick them up? If so try to let me know what they were.

A Brambling was next to the feeders in the Old Moor RSPB car park.
