The Gloom Continues.

This morning at The Point in the a north easterly wind the sea was not nearly as busy as yesterday.
There was still plenty of Red Throated Divers and Auks tooing and froing off shore but not the numbers of yesterday, nor were there so many gulls. On the beach a 1w Caspian Gull.

 On new diggings the usual Great White Egret could be seen from the causeway. On Scotney the Long Tailed Duck still, also the feral Barnacle Goose flock on the grass with a few Dunlin, Golden Plover, Redshank and a Curlew. The 37 Bewick Swans still north of Caldecott Lane.
A gloomy hour on the reserve this afternoon saw a Goosander, a red head Smew, a Black-necked Grebe, 3 Great White Egrets and 100s of duck including a few Pintail and 8 Goldeneye.
