Wednesday 20th January

The cold weather overnight saw an increase in wildfowl with 106 Wigeon, 68 Teal and eight Pintail in the estuary, wader  umber remained low but due to a low high tide rather than not responding to the weather, also from the hide the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere three new birds for the year were around Greenland Lake/Dead Dolphin Wood; a hunting female Kestrel, a Lesser Redpoll and a brief Mistle Thrush. Elsewhere two Great Northern Diver were offshore and the pair of Gadwall remained on the Main Pond.
