Saturday 4th January
A Great Skua in the Bight early morning was the only new arrival but the seven Velvet Scoter and at least five Great Northern Diver remained off the seawall, whilst the Bonaparte's Gull was again seen along the beach. Also offshore a second winter Little Gull, 70 Common Scoter, seven Pintail, just five Great-crested Grebe and a Red-throated Diver. Elsewhere 84 Bar-tailed Godwit were in the estuary, a good count these days and two Mistle Thrush were by Pirate's Cove.
