Following the recent stormy weather West End Levels has once again gained a decent amount of floodwater, which has drawn in some good numbers of ducks and geese. Total counts from the area as a whole were: 24 Pintail, 6 Gadwall, 5 Shoveler, 23 Wigeon, 20 Teal, 39 Mallard, plus approx. 250 each of Canada and Greylag Geese. A dozen Lapwing were also present, but only eight Snipe were counted in total, perhaps not surprising with the amount of floodwater present; just three weeks previously over 50 were counted in much drier conditions.
