21st February 2011

A sea watch today on a very high tide produced 3 Red-throated Divers, 20 Great Crested Grebes, 35 Common Scoter, 15 Red-breasted mergansers and 8 Guillemots. Ten thousand Dunlin and 4 thousand Knot were seen around the east hoyle bank.
The Purple Sandpipier roost on the high tide was the highest count of the winter at 24 birds, with bar-tailed Godwits numbering 40 and Redshanks 50 .
Six Canada Geese were less expected visitors.
