For the second day in the year we headed into Essex and the wildfowl and waders on the river
There were the usual high numbers of Knot feeding in the mud, plus Avocet and Curlew. Duck wise there were Pintails, Shelduck, Goldeneye and Scaup. Plus over a hundred Mute Swans which had been infiltrated by the usual escaped Black Swans and two Chinese Geese (a domestically bred goose).

One final stop before heading back home and we try to beat the light and get to the small coastal gap at Salthouse.
On the pools there were Teal and Turnstone, plus a largish flock of Snow Buntings (20 to 30 birds) feeding on the shingle. Great end to a great day!
