Sunday 8th December

A Water Pipit in front of the hide was a new arrival, with the White-fronted Goose again on the Golf Course (it had been back at Orcombe first light) and a drake Pintail also in the estuary. Elsewhere the Bonaparte's Gull and a Slavonian Grebe were offshore and two Cirl Bunting were on site.

This Shelduck was rung on the Axe Estuary in East Devon on 09/02/2013 and this was the first sighting since ringing. Another ringed Shelduck seen today was here back in January and had been rung at Steart in Somerset on 18/09/2005.
