Broken Beak

A Red-breasted Merganser has been on the river at Aller Brook for a while now, but unfortunately the end of its lower mandible has been broken off.

This photo has been up on the notice board for a while now - not sure if its related?

On the estuary there were two Snipe, two Common Sandpiper, 14 Common Gull and c40 Curlew. Another birder reported that a Merlin had been seen at Netherton Point, but after a good look, there was no sign. I did hear a Green Woodpecker and see my first three Swallows of the year over the estuary though.
