12th December 2020 – early rain clearing WNW4/5
Please note that South Walney Nature Reserve remains open (1000-1600hrs) though the hides and visitor centre are closed to comply with social distancing measures.
A check of the sea as the rain cleared (1000-1100) produced 10 Common Scoter, 8 Red-throated Diver, 7 Kittiwake, 4 Razorbill and a Guillemot.
Wildfowl and Waders
Three redhead Goosander were logged.
A group of 30 Twite and 2 Merlin were the best of the rest.
A colour-ringed Knot amongst 500 birds appears to be of Icelandic origin.
