However I wonder if the two Freckled Ds are not still there, as reported by Steve the week before?  They were both there on Wednesday.  In a large grouping they tend to mooch separately, but they were feeding in company, upending-style along the margins, and sitting together to preen.  I could not detect any of the reddish breeding colour on the bill either of them.  Frame from video: -
