Sunday 15th December

The WeBS count on a fairly wet and miserable day revealed the continued presence of the Black Brant with 239 Dark-bellied Brent Geese in the Bight, other counts on the rising tide including 1450+ Oystercatcher, 850+ Dunlin, 82 Redshank, 59 Shelduck, 53 Grey Plover, 38 Knot, 20 Bar and eight Black-tailed Godwit, 18 Turnstone, 17 Red-breasted Merganser and the female Long-tailed Duck. Elsewhere the Water Pipit was in front of the hide and a Pomarine Skua flew south offshore.
