Sunday 17th November

The first Snow Bunting since October 2016 circled over the Entrance Bushes before seeming to land on the beach but unfortunately there was no further sign. An immature Black Redstart around the Go-Karts was another new arrival, with a Firecrest and the Cetti's Warbler by the Dune Pond.

Elsewhere 15 Great-crested Grebe, two Eider, two Great Northern and two Red-throated Diver were offshore and counts from the estuary included 276 Dark-bellied Brent Geese (44 juveniles), 102 Knot, 62 Bar-tailed Godwit and the Slavonian Grebe.

Wildlife News: Seven Bottle-nosed Dolphin, only the second sighting since Sep 2017, and a Harbour Porpoise were off the seawall.
