Saturday 25th November

A continuing winter feel today with a site record 13 Collared Dove an unexpected highlight. In the estuary the cold weather perhaps lead to some increased counts with 1270 Dunlin, 244 Dark and 27 Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 81 Shelduck, 76 Grey Plover, 48 Knot, 22 Sanderling, four Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere single Great Northern and Red-throated Diver were offshore, a Firecrest was in Dead Dolphin Wood, two Shoveler were on the Main Pond and five Chiffchaff and a Redwing were in the Entrance Bushes.

Wildlife News: at least six Buff-tailed Bumblebee were around the Boathouse.
