An afternoon visit, but the Main Pond remained frozen, although a singing Little Grebe had presumably managed to find open patches of water out of sight. The ice had driven Water Rail out into the open, with birds feeding on the frozen surface and often glimpsed running between areas of reedbed, a minimum of eight were estimated but numbers could easily be higher. The two Cetti's Warbler had survived the freeze as had a Chiffchaff, and on the Golf Course, the Dartford Warbler.
Also on the course (no public access) a Jack Snipe and a Mistle Thrush with a Cattle Egret over south before heading along the coast. The tide was well out but 77 Shelduck and a Greenshank were present amongst small numbers of Dunlin and Curlew.
