Highlight today was a 1st winter CASPIAN GULL at about 3 pm that unfortunately took off as soon as I had found it (but kindly flew by the viewpoint for some salient features), and did not return in the evening.

Otherwise:2 Pintails (1 adult male, 1 very dingy (1st winter) male), 100 Wigeon, 3 female Red-crested Pochards, 5 Smew (2 drakes) and 1-2 Bittern (only seen in flight) (Jan Hein Steenis)

The Caspian Gull record constitutes the first record of the year
