Guillemots/Razorbills: 1,560 (TG counted them), Great Crested Grebes 2,000+, smaller numbers of Gannets, Kittiwakes and Red Throated Divers but no passage. Behind the sea watching hide 2 Black Redstarts but a little camera shy.
On Walland still 200+ Bewick Swans present though very distant, a distinct lack of winter Thrushes(No Fieldfares or Redwings seen) opposite the feeders dozens of House and Tree Sparrows, Greenfinches, Chaffinches and a Yellowhammer.
