A check of the sea (0900-1000) produced 26 Common Scoter, 9 Red-throated Diver, 6 Gannet, 3 Kittiwake and 2 Razorbill. A Great Northern Diver was along the eastern shore.
Grounded Migrants
A flock of 21 Pink-footed Geese were grounded and a Woodcock was a likely product of the recent cold weather.
Wildfowl and Waders
A Black-tailed Godwit was the pick of the waders.
The Hooded Crow remains and 35 Twite were seen.
