Sunday 26th January

The heavy rain and strong winds overnight changed things offshore with counts of only five Red-throated Diver and two Great-crested Grebe. The male Long-tailed Duck, the Red-necked Grebe and the six Velvet Scoter were however still present. Elsewhere an adult Glaucous Gull flew in off the sea before heading off towards Mudbank Lane, the Black Brant was on the Golf Course with 255 Brent Geese and counts from the estuary included 200+ Grey Plover, 74 Knot, 32 Ringed Plover, 31 Sanderling, three Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe.
