Tuesday 9th January

A Firecrest warmed up a cold day foraging in bramble along the Back Path, otherwise the bushes were quiet. A flock of 21 Skylark roaming between Warren Point and the Bight was the only notable passerine flock on site. The Main Pond is beginning to ice up, however two pairs of Shoveler remained.

It was a low tide visit and the estuary was devoid of small waders with just a few Curlew, Redshank and a lone Avocet remaining around the saltmarsh. 96 Shelduck were on the mudflats with 58 Teal and 37 Wigeon in Shutterton Creek.

The easterly wind produced, as usual, nothing on a choppy sea apart from one Great Crested Grebe and the eight Eider.

Year list addition:

87. Firecrest
