23rd December 2009

Thrushes and Lapwings were again the feature of the day in this very cold weather. Four each of Blackbirds and Song Thrushes were counted and it remains to be seen how many stay for the winter.
Flocks of Lapwings of 50, 5, and 60 flew west this morning rather than the southwesterly direction of Tuesday. The Eider was still present and a Raven landed on the east hoyle bank.
At Little Eye at the flood tide were 2,500 Dunlin, 280 Grey Plover and 320 Curlew.
