A grey, overcast and frequently wet day saw the two Firecrest remain in the Entrance Bushes with at least seven Chiffchaff and a Coal Tit. More unexpected were two Woodcock by the Main Pond, usually only a cold weather visitor to the Recording Area.
In the estuary counts included 1340 Dunlin, 290 Dark and two Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 139 Grey Plover, 104 Bar and four Black-tailed Godwit, 80 Knot, 67 Turnstone, 29 Sanderling and singles of Kittiwake, Guillemot, Greenshank and Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere four Eider were offshore, four Shoveler were on the Main Pond and the Cetti's Warbler was near the Dune Pond.
