29th January 2016

Weather: WNW force 7/8  gusting winds

A short pre-tide visit found little on the rough sea except a Great Crested Grebe and 82 Common Scoters, a walk through the old obs garden however flushed a Short-eared Owl from underfoot that was obviously sheltering form the westerly wind. It flew south towards Middle Eye and seemed to land between the islands but was not seen again. Two Purple Sandpipers were at the north end; a Song Thrush and a Rock Pipit were noted, and a pair of Teal were in the gutter east of the obs (right, CJ).
