The first Red-necked Grebe of the year was off the seawall mid afternoon before drifting south, also offshore 156 Common Scoter, five Pintail, a Great Northern and a Red-throated Diver. Overhead pigeons were again on the move with 14875 Wood Pigeon and 19 Stock Dove counted heading west with a couple of small groups of Dunlin in with them. Heading in the other direction there were 148 Chaffinch, 12 Skylark and single Mistle Thrush, Siskin, Redpoll and Brambling.
