Friday 4th February

The Velvet Scoter and Slavonian Grebe were offshore, but there was little else out there with just 12 Great-crested Grebe and singles of Red-throated and Great Northern Diver found with diligent scanning. 

Elsewhere the two wintering Siberian Chiffchaff were feeding together on the sunny side of Dead Dolphin Wood, with six Shoveler, two Snipe and the female Kingfisher, on its usual perch, at the Main Pond.  

In the estuary the two Black-necked Grebe were off Cockwood, but wader and wildfowl counts weren't possible as a low flying RAF plane circled several times just as the tide was dropping. They ensured virtually all birds had left this section of the SPA before eventually leaving.
