Glyn Evans and Alec Selley carried out the monthly wetland bird survey along the north side of the Island on Monday 17th. Amongst the birds seen on the walk by Glyn was this little egret.

This pair of teal were seen on the country park's grazing fields.

Several hundred brent geese have been feeding around the eastern end of the Island, here on the saltmarsh at high tide.

The main highlight of the walk was provided by Martin Cock who saw a red-throated diver in the Colne and later saw three long-tailed ducks fly out of the river.
