Here’s hoping for a bird filled year!

1st January 2011 – overcast/drizzle at times NE2/3
A check over the calm sea early morning produced 44 Common Scoter, 12 Red-breasted Merganser, 10 Red-throated Diver, 4 Razorbill and a single Great Crested Grebe.
Grounded Migrants
A Redwing was the only hint of movement.
Diurnal Migration
An adult Whooper Swan headed south.
Wildfowl and Waders
The Brent Goose flock held 108 pale-bellied individuals and the Barnacle Geese increased to 38 birds. Waders included 3 Greenshank and a Black-tailed Godwit.
Four Little Egret were seen and the Common Buzzard continues to linger.
