7th January 2010

Another good day with the two Ravens still around, 5 Mute Swans moving through and thrushes still in good numbers around the main island with 12 Song Thrushes, 2 Redwing and 8 Blackbirds.

Unsurprisingly cold weather movement continued with 114 Lawping and 20 Skylarks on the move.

Unusually high wader counts included 250 Grey Plover, 5,000 Dunlin and 10,000 Knot.

Raptors were much in evidence with Merlin, Kestrel, 2 Peregrines and (possibly the same reappearing) male Sparrowhawk.
