Saturday 20th January

A brief second winter Iceland Gull was the day's highlight, it flew west over John's Watch late morning keeping to the estuary side of the Warren before heading south. Offshore the Long-tailed Duck and four Great Northern Diver were still near the estuary mouth with 105 Great-crested Grebe and two Red-throated Diver off the seawall.

Elsewhere a Firecrest was in Dead Dolphin Wood and counts from the estuary included 138 Grey Plover, 105 Knot, 49 Shelduck, 22 Sanderling, 18 Bar-tailed Godwit and the Slavonian Grebe.
