Sunday 1st December

The crisp & cold weather was not the only sign of impending winter with 19 Fieldfare and two Lapwing overhead and a couple of Redwing in Dead Dolphin Wood. In the estuary a female Goldeneye was a new arrival with 162 Dark and five Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 59 Shelduck and the Slavonian Grebe also present. A total of 82 colour-ringed Oystercatcher were recorded over high tide.

Elsewhere a Great Northern Diver was offshore, 45 Goldfinch were feeding in the Entrance Bushes and at least four Water Rail were in the flooded areas around the First and Main Pond.
