Wednesday 27th December

A bright sunny day but cold in a biting north-westerly wind. Offshore the choppy conditions were not conducive for good counts with just 45 Great-crested Grebe, two Great Northern and a Red-throated Diver, with c150 Gannet actively feeding at distance.  In the estuary the windy conditions and low high tide meant waders were sheltering in low numbers away from Bight, with counts limited to 113 Brent Geese, 37 Shelduck and an adult Mediterranean Gull. Elsewhere a Firecrest was reported and there was again no sign of the Jack Snipe.
