Wintersett Monday 20th March 2023

 A flock of 22 Dunlin, the largest for a number of years here, flew southwest, followed by a single later in the morning.

A flock of 13 Snipe also flew southwest, with 6 on the Country Park shallows.

Other than waders, not much moving:

M Pipit - 23 NW

Starling - 29 SE.

There were 6 Redpoll & 20 Siskin on the Country Park & a Shelduck was on the Top Res in the afternoon.

The Great White Egret flew in at 11am, circled the Country Park and left back towards Walton Hall where it is presumably living at the moment.

A dead female Wigeon on the north bank of the Country Park had most of its breast feathers plucked, but presumably the predator (Peregrine?) appears to have been flushed and no longer around.
