30th January 2019

Weather: S  0-1   snow/sleet showers early on.
A lovely snowy start to the day saw good numbers of waders and Gulls in the Gutter and along the North Shore. At least 1300 Gulls (mainly Herring) were feeding on the Starfish wreck.
Good counts were made of Grey Plover (265) and Redshank (267) but only 1 Purple Sandpiper was noted. Other waders included 3,480 Knot, 120 Dunlin, 94 Turnstone,  a couple of Sanderling and 50 Curlew.
The 211 Brent Geese include a colour ringed bird and the 2 Eider are still present, 13 Common Scoter and 6 Great Crested Grebe were on the sea. Snowdrops showed well in the garden against the lying snow.
