What a difference a day makes. Blue sky, mild and plenty of birds on the sea. 100+ Red-throated divers on the sea and up and down off shore, 100s of Guillemots and some Razorbills on the sea and moving mainly west, numerous Great Crested Grebes on the sea, c60 Gannets off shore, 200+ Common Scoter (Juvenile/females) west, 12 Brent Geese E 7W, and a mixed flock of c100 Sanderling and Dunlin. The Glaucous Gull was bullying the Herring Gulls on the wooden tower.
The Scotney complex still holds the c90 feral Barnacle Geese flock with its attendant dark bellied Brent Goose, c1000 Lapwing, c1000 Wigeon also 2 Marsh Harriers over the bunds.
On Walland at Tickners Lane the Yellowhammers had increased to 14 with 4 Reed Buntings and c 40 Chaffinches, also 2 Common Buzzards over.
