most birds were sheltering on Houghton and difficult to count but the combined totals are;
Shelduck 11, Mallard 470, Teal 160, Wigeon 182, Shoveler 27 and just 13 Lapwing with most probably sheltering in fields which is where the geese presumably were too.

Mallard 88, Teal 21, Gadwall 23, Shoveler 22, Wigeon 11, Pochard 15, Tufted 10, Lapwing 12, Ringed Plover 5 on the ash field next to Sash, Green Sandpiper 1.
