 A walk down the marsh from Mullock was pretty quiet although there were a few snipe disturbed from the upper reed sections and on the old sandpit fields well over 100 Lapwing but they were disturbed by the farmer and disappeared.  The pools held a few Teal and over 179 Wigeon which were disturbed by a dog walker  and also disappeared, a single goldeneye, a redshank and a greenshank and a couple of Little Grebe.  I could see in the far distance, the tide was a long way out, a few Brent Geese and other dots moving about.  The hedgerows were quiet along the whole route.
