white-fronted geese stayed close together amongst the 400 wigeon, 100 brent geese and 80 greylag geese. The original darker juvenile is pictured closest in the picture, while the newer juvenile on the left-hand side of the picture is a bit paler.
At the Point 2 rock pipits flew over the saltmarsh, 5 knot and 70 shelduck on the mud, 500 brent on the Brightlingsea side and a common seal in the river.
Two shoveler and two tufted ducks were on the pond along with a few mallard, teal and wigeon.
Yesterday at the park Andy Field saw the single white-fronted goose, 2 snipe at the pond and a chiffchaff during his walk round the site.
