A Goldeneye was again in Shutterton Creek, although surprisingly a ♂ not yesterday's ♀, the juvenile Spoonbill again roosted on Finger Point with 1991 Dunlin, 155 Knot, 128 Grey Plover and six Sanderling. Also in the estuary, 215 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 209 Teal, 77 Shelduck, 48 Wigeon, six Eider and two Red-breasted Merganser

Offshore the other three Eider, 14 Great Crested Grebe,13+ Red-throated Diver flew in from E (again) at dawn to forage from Langstone Rock to Dawlish Bay, and a Pintail circled the bay.

Elsewhere the immature ♂ Dartford Warbler, last recorded on 18 Dec, showed well in Gorse beside the Back Path, three Siskin flew around site and then back to mainland, two pairs of Shoveler were on Main Pond and single Chiffchaff and Goldcrest in the bushes.
