Saturday 13th February

Precious little to show for coverage of the site nearly all day with a Great Northern Diver close inshore, a Slavonian Grebe offshore plus the resident bird in the estuary.  Two Common Scoter, one Kittiwake and zero Gannet were all else there was at sea.   Two Great Crested Grebe were in the estuary and a Kingfisher was by the hide, but the waders did not avail themselves for counts during the spring high tide.

The bushes faired a little better with the welcome return of one of the wintering Firecrest in the Entrance Bushes.  Also present, 20 Greenfinch, 19 Linnet, five Chaffinch, five Skylark, four Siskin, four Meadow Pipit, three Stonechat, two Chiffchaff with one at Warren Point, and singles of Great Spotted Woodpecker, Coal Tit, Bullfinch and the regular female Kestrel.
