A bitterly cold SE wind this morning produced a small movement of Red-throated Divers but little else.

Teal: 5 down
Red-throated Diver: 274 up  4 down
Great-crested Grebe: 9 up    7 down    6 on
Fulmar: 2 up    1 down
Gannet: 65 up    7 down
Oystercatcher: 1 up
Turnstone:  3 around

Red-necked Grebe, Camber
At Scotney no Grey Geese on the main lake, a Black-necked Grebe was the only interest on there. It was far to cold to wander out the back to look for the Geese and Lapland Buntings. 
At Camber the Red-necked Grebe is still on it's chosen lake but is getting harassed by the resident Great-crested Grebes, 2 Little Grebes and a Kingfisher also there.
A Slavonian Grebe can still be seen on the New Diggings from the causeway. The Ring-necked Duck was still on Cook's Pool but it was to cold to get out of the car and walk around the reserve.
