Tuesday 29th December

Similar fayre to recent days with 48 Great Crested Grebe now offshore plus another three in the estuary; five Red-throated Diver, single-figures of Gannet, Kittiwake and Razorbill, and the imm Great Northern Diver stationed, as usual, close offshore from Warren Point.   

Low tide during daylight hours and the usual selection of waterbirds were out on the mudflats and in the channels, including three-figures of Shelduck, Teal and a few Wigeon.  Out on the exposed sandflats offshore and along the beach, only a single Lesser Black-backed Gull was noted among diminished numbers of late of c.305 Herring Gull.

As usual, small numbers of mixed tits, Goldcrest, Chiffchaff, Song Thrush, Bullfinch and single Redwing, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Chaffinch in the trees, with at least a dozen mobile Siskin that sometimes mixed with up to 44 Goldfinch and 19 Greenfinch
