Wind and Rain

This morning as I parked at the end of the concrete road at The Point, the Glaucous Gull landed beside the car and remained there for the duration of my sea watch. Very little movement off shore in the southerly gale and rain c20 Guillemots, c25 Gannets, 4 Kittiwakes, 9 Red-throated Divers and 3 Common Scoter. At The Patch the highlight was a juvenile Little Gull and bedraggled Goldcrest behind the hide.
Up to 3 Great White Egrets could be seen on New Diggings from the causeway. On Walland Marsh the 2 Whooper Swans still at Midley also c600 Fieldfares there. With the weather still lousy I gave up and came home.
