I completed the September WEBS count today with Dave. There were 250 Mallard, 70 Tufted and 75 Coot. Afew Wigeon ,Teal and a single Gadwall completed a rather disappointing tally, with the disappearance of the 3 Red crested Pochard adding to the gloom. Dave did manage to raise spirits with a late Swift, the ten year average being September 20th. Other sightings today included 2 Ravens, Willow tit, and at least 30 Tree sparrow at the feeder at the top end. I have not seen as many as this for several years.
