6th December 2011

The highlight of the day was a record count of 209 Pale-bellied Brent Geese (despite being disturbed by a helicopter!). On the sea 2 Great Crested Grebes, 2 Shag and a single Gannet were seen and a nice adult winter Mediterranean Gull flew north east off the North End. An unringed Rock Pipit was present as was the Snow Bunting still in the South Cove. An impressive count of 1,857 Cormorant added to a good day all round with a single Peregrine making an appearance.
