08-45-10.45 with MH:
Dark-bellied Brent Goose: 473 up
Pale-bellied Brent Goose:     1 up
Great-crested Grebe: 1,432 on sea (my best count this year)
Red-throated Diver: 10 down    3 up
Gannet: c25 off shore
Oystercatcher: 6 up
Turnstone: 1 on beach
Kittiwake: 6 down
Guillemot: 1 on sea
Auk sp: 6 down
Raven: 4 down

A drake and duck Smew was at the south end of the New Diggings, over the road on the ARC another duck 7 Goldeneye and a Great White Egret.
At Scotney the 3 Black-necked Grebes still but little else of note.
The Egret roost this evening was some what disappointing with just 7 Little Egrets and 5 Great White Egrets, though a Bittern dropping into the roost was a bonus.  Once again the Starlings put on a spectacular display especially when attacked by a Sparrowhawk and 1 of 6 Marsh Harriers that flew over.
