23rd December 2010

The wind remained in the north east and with slightly overcast conditions it was bitingly cold. However, yet another good day occurred with small movements of Pink-footed Geese recorded (20 and 17), 7 Lapwing passed over, a single Snipe was noted.

A superb count of 82 Scaup, 3 Tufted Duck and a single Goldeneye continued the wildfowl and wader theme for the week.

Of 8 Song Thrushes and 2 Blackbirds present four of the former and a single male Blackbird were caught and ringed.
