still snaw

Another small cold weather movement at Galley this morning, with the arrival of 4 whooper swans on the lake. They didn't stay long, as the semi-resident mute (swan) chased them off, which was a shame. At least 2 coots still remain, plus 13 (count 'em!) cormorants, a huddle of teal and a smattering of lapwings. Two bar-tailed godwits flew past the house this morning too, which was a bit of a waste as I already year-ticked them yesterday. Sanderling and/or knot would be much more welcome!
