Crossing Walland on my way to The Point, 58 Bewick Swans back in the usual field at Midley, a Common Buzzard flew over, 4 Corn buntings an the drying barn , 30+ Fieldfare at Hawthorn Corner and 2 Marsh Harriers.
At a bitterly cold beach, on the sea it was as you were, with Auks, Great Crested Grebes, Cormorants, Kittiwakes, Gannets and Red Throated Divers tooing and froing. The only passgae of any note was 18 Brent Geese moving east.

I had a look at the massed ranks of feeders at Warehorn Church on the way home, they were very busy with dozens of Greenfinches, Chaffinches, Great, Blue and Long Tailed Tits, House Sparrows, Starlings, Collared Doves , Blackbirds, a Song Thrush, 2 Tree Sparrows and a Nuthatch. With all this food readily available I thought I might find a Brambling among the Chaffinches, maybe next time.
