Alan Reynolds took this set of photos during his visit to the country park on Friday 13th.
This male teal pictured above, is one of 300+ teal feeding and roosting on the muddy pools in the grazing fields.

Two pairs of wigeon and a curlew are often seen in front of the hide feeding in the field. In the nearby main fields there are currently about 400 wigeon grazing the pasture.

The brightly marked shelduck is usually seen out on the mudflats with 70 seen on Monday.

Plenty of black-headed gulls can be seen throughout the year although during the winter time they lack the "black-head".

The local foxes are always out on the prowl at the back of the fields even during the daytime.
