Saturday 15th February

A very wet and windy day with extensive flooding on the golf course meaning many waders were feeding on the empty fairways. Counts from the estuary included a winter high of 391 Brent Geese, presumably feeding areas elsewhere were underwater, 181 Knot, 158 Grey Plover, 23 Sanderling and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere a Water Pipit was on the Golf Course and offshore eight Tufted Duck flew south along with four Red-throated and a Great Northern Diver, 30 Gannet and 20 Fulmar.
