A sizeable flock of 34 pale-bellied Brent Geese on the incoming tide late afternoon.  Good numbers of gulls too, mainly Lesser Black-backs.  The gull roost was widely dispersed and therefore difficult to count, but I managed at least 51 Mediterranean Gulls (46 adults, 5 2CY - not a single bird hatched in 2016).  Still not a patch on the 234 recorded in Broad Sound on Monday, but not bad!
