18th January 2017

Weather: W force 0/1 visibility 10 miles

Just before dawn circa 400 Canada geese took to the air from the Little Eye area with the majority flying north but some going towards Grange Hill. On the sea a male Teal had joined the remaining 2 Scaup with 2 Great Crested Grebes, 200 Cormorants and 250 Common Scoter.
As the tide rose a very calm sea enabled a good count of 290 Brent geese, most in the water off the south west side of Middle. A single Grey Heron and 5 Purple Sandpiper were present as were the usual 3 Crows with another 5 flying east over the island. Later the Snow Bunting was again at Little Eye
