Saturday 25th January

Another day with plenty of activity offshore including six Velvet Scoter, Red-necked, Black-necked and 40+ Great-crested Grebe, two Eider, two Long-tailed Duck, two Great Northern and c40 Red-throated Diver but again no sign of the Bonaparte's Gull. In the estuary the resident Slavonian Grebe made it another five grebe day, also there the Black Brant with c400 Brent Geese, 150+ Common and two Mediterranean Gull, 32 Ringed Plover and four Greenshank. Elsewhere two Cirl Bunting were mobile around site, a Mistle Thrush briefly pitched into Greenland Lake and eight Raven, the first of the year, flew over.
