Black-headed Gull 45  
Canada Goose 1  
Cormorant 1  
Grey Heron 2  
Kestrel 2  
Kingfisher 1  
Lapwing 21  
Little Grebe 3  
Mallard 80  
Mandarin Duck 1  
Meadow Pipit 1
Moorhen 4

Snipe 3  
Total number of species: 16, Individuals: 173

I also had a single Stock Dove in a large cedar in an adjacent field and ~25 Goldfinch in the Willows on the opposite side of the river. It was another stunning Sunrise as well making the early start well worthwhile.
