Saturday 9th December

A Black-necked Grebe off the seawall early morning was only the second of the year, also present 84 Gannet, 26 Great-crested Grebe, three Eider, six Red-throated and two Great Northern Diver. Counts from the estuary remained low with 720 Dunlin, 131 Brent Geese, 128 Redshank, 94 Grey Plover, 74 Shelduck, 57 Turnstone, 51 Curlew, 22 Sanderling, six Knot, two Greenshank, two Bar and a Black-tailed Godwit.

Elsewhere a Firecrest was in the Entrance Bushes with four Chiffchaff, the Jack Snipe was on the Main Pond with four Shoveler and a Snipe, the Mistle Thrush was in Dead Dolphin Wood and a couple of Redwing flew over, the only sign of the cold weather.
