Fog continues to hamper observations

7th February 2010 – Fog E1
Grounded Migrants
The dense fog again grounded a few thrushes with 45 Fieldfare and 3 Redwing logged.
Diurnal Migration
Flocks of Pink-footed Geese were regularly heard throughout the morning, however; only 130 birds were seen through the gloom with many more frustratingly remaining out of view.
Wildfowl and Waders
A Greenshank calling through the fog was the only record of note
At least 3 Little Egret continue to stalk the salt marshes and a single Water Rail squealed.
