Sunday 16th February

The weather eased off by early afternoon but left little change in its wake, although beach levels dropped by up to a foot overnight. Waders remain dispersed around the estuary with few on the dropping tide but 41 Redshank and four Greenshank were present. Also in the river 200+ Brent Geese, 16 Great-crested and the Slavonian Grebe, nine Red-breasted Merganser and three Goldeneye.

Elsewhere the first 10 Pintail of the year flew high into the estuary arriving from east of Orcombe Point with 11 Great-crested Grebe and single Red-throated and Great Northern Diver offshore.
