Gann, St Ann's and Marloes Mere

Pickleridge Pools (post Derek): 4 Redshank, 3 Greenshank, 3 Knot, 2 Common Sandpiper, 3 Teal and a Little Grebe. 2 Little egret up on flooded marsh. St Ann's/Kete: Pied wagtails up to 25 in the last field, a Wheatear and a Kestrel. Some promising-looking fields but nothing I could see in them. Lots of Gannet activity off the lighthouse so had a sea watch but only Gannets. Airfield will have to wait for another day. Quick look from both hides at Marloes Mere: 80 Mallard, 10 Teal and a Snipe.
