Broomhill Flash mid AM- Present were 2 Cormorant, 3a+4j Mute Swan, 14 Canada Geese, 80 Gadwall, 9 Teal,  7 Tufted Duck, 2 Pochard, 2f Goldeneye, 145 BH Gull and 1 Common Gull.

Bolton Ings late AM/ early PM- Present were 5 Cormorant, 1 Great Crested Grebe, 4a+4j Mute Swan, 36 Canada Geese(escorted by a Muscovy Duck), 13 Pochard, 9 Tufted Duck, 6m+3f Shoveler, 8 Mallard, 8 Teal, 4 Wigeon, 38 BH Gull, 5 Common Gull and 36 Lapwing.

Along the TPT were  50-60 Redpoll, 1 Siskin and 1 Gt Spotted Woodpecker.

The lure of a Smew matinee performance on Wath Ings proved stronger than a trip to Wombwell Ings. A swooping Peregrine in front of the hide provided a marvelous curtain-raiser to the main attraction.
