Great Crested Grebe:27, Cormorant: 32, Grey Heron: 10, Mute Swan: 91, Canada Goose: 91, Wigeon: 205, Gadwall: 114, Teal: 184, Mallard: 184, Shoveler: 33, Pochard: 2, Tufted Duck: 92, Little Grebe: 3, Moorhen: 26, Coot: 277, Kingfisher: 3, Greylag Goose: 3, Lapwing: 136, Golden Plover: 213, Water Rail:2 and Goosander: 8.
