Mandarin, Dams (Mark Pearson)

A female Mandarin frequented the Dams this morning (where it spent much of it time attacking other birds substantially larger than itself). A total of seven Swallows and two Sand Martins moved through there, with the male Pochard, three Shelduck, two Mute Swans, 26 Wigeon, 15 Teal and five Chiffchaffs divided between there and East Lea. A Blue Fulmar and a Red-breasted Merganser were the best of the seawatch, while single Redwings were at the Dams and the Tip. Yesterday (10th), two Swallows were at the Dams.
