I was at RMBS last evening and counted 86 swans throughout the area.
There were 75 in Ellis Bay, Heron Pond, and the pond south of Heron Pond.
A very large gull roost was out in the middle of Ellis Bay with many gulls
continuously joining it. When we were leaving, 9 more swans
were flying towards Heron Pond, and there were two at Lincoln
Shields. We also enjoyed a beautiful sunset. I didn't have my
scope but there were few ducks in Ellis Bay.
