1.45pm, brief visit. From shelter of the toilet block counted 52 Curlew very jumpy Curlew in the field adjacent. Geese in there too, spooking them. Of those, 28 returned to feed a little closer. Saw that rt leg Black '18' was still present (see Gallery) as well as two rt-leg Yellow c-ring birds, and a left-leg Yellow c-ring bird but unfortunately just too distant for telescope to read precisely enough. Numbering less distinct on yellow background.

48 Lapwing on the flooded sailing club meadow, 19 Curlew flying around, 8 Redpoll & 7 Goldfinch feeding on the lake margin, the Chiffchaff singing again by the footbridge and an Oystercatcher. The drake Scaup was on the Llangasty side. 10 Barnacle Gesse were in five pairs, B11 & B37 (also paired in 2023), B14 & B31 (also paired in 2022 & 2023), P25 & unringed (P25 also paired with an unringed bird in 2022 & 2023), an unringed pair, and B25 & B30 (a possible new pairing as in 2023 B25 paired with B34, and B30 paired with B21). None of these pairs bred sucessfully last year but in 2022 P25 and its unringed mate had 4 goslings and B14 & B31 had one gosling. B30 was the only one of these birds recorded during the 2023-24 winter at WWT Slimbridge 02/02/24.
