Saturday 19th January 2013

A Mistle Thrush on the Golf Course was the first of the year and along with an arrival of 19 Skylark, 15+ Song Thrush and 10+ Redwing was the only sign of the cold weather movement. Counts from the estuary included 300+ Brent Geese, 177 Grey Plover, 160+ Wigeon, 120+ Teal, 91 Knot, 58 Shelduck, three Avocet and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere the Black-necked Grebe was at the Main Pond, a Chiffchaff was by the amusements and a Red-throated Diver was offshore.
