Another visit from Common Scoter with a female present but keeping well out in the water along with a single Teal. Three Tufted on the water which was unusual and 2 Teal flew >S at distance.
No waders present but 3 Kestrel were patrolling the shoreline.
Whilst talking on the phone to DCB at the Oxenhope watch point HC there scoped 34 Pink Footed Geese well out to the east and heading east which Dave directed me onto looking over the Whetstone Gate area.
