Sunday 12th January

Early morning saw four Red-throated and a Great Northern Diver head south with four diver sp in just ten minutes, but attention was then diverted to the high tide. Ten Cattle Egret were again in the Railway Saltmarsh with a Whimbrel, 65 Curlew and 38 Bar-tailed Godwit. Other counts included 1350 Dunlin, 279 Common Gull, 209 Wigeon, 84 Teal, 54 Redshank, just 28 Shelduck, three Goldeneye, a Little and the Slavonian Grebe.  

Elsewhere the female Eider was off the estuary mouth, a Grey Wagtail was around the Entrance Bushes and the first Reed Bunting of the year was in front of the hide.
