15th February 2010

The high numbers of Brent Geese were still present although an accurate count was not possible c160 pale-bellied and 2 dark-bellied birds were present.

Wader numbers were the main focus with 40 Grey Plover, 6,000 Knot, 4,000 Dunlin and 620 Curlew and an excellent count for recent times of 240 Sanderling. The majority of these birds were seen on the East Hoyle sand bank.

Unsurprisingly a Peregrine was also seen!

A little more unusual was a Woodpigeon that was chased off by said Peregrine.
