Great Northern Diver takes star billing

3rd February 2010 – overcast/cold/snow later SE2/3
Morning observations provided a huge raft of 5000 Eider feeding offshore along with 10 Shag and smaller numbers of Red-throated Diver and Common Scoter. A Great Northern Diver was along the eastern shore.
Grounded Migrants
Another influx of winter thrushes, perhaps pre-empting the snow, involved 100 Redwing, 24 Fieldfare and a Mistle Thrush.
Diurnal Migration
A total of 400 Pink-footed Geese and 2 Whooper Swan headed north.
Two Little Egret were the only record of note.
