Saturday 19th December

Counts from the estuary included 421 Brent Geese, 160 Grey Plover, 98 Great Black-backed and 65 Common Gull, 59 Bar-tailed Godwit, 49 Knot, 29 Sanderling, 24 Ringed Plover, four Greenshank and a Kingfisher, also from the hide the wintering Water Pipit, a Sandwich Tern, the third different individual this week, and a flyover Golden Plover. Elsewhere the wet and windy weather meant there was little showing in the bushes but it was also quiet offshore with nine Pintail arriving from the south and three Red-throated Diver passing the only sightings of note.
