Tuesday 10th December 2013

Foggy/murky start which obviously delayed the Cormorants leaving the roost up river as 173 were counted flying out to sea early on. Glorious winter sunshine followed which meant Mr & Mrs Peregrine and Mr & Mrs Little Owl were out sunning themselves. A Little Egret came out of the river over the obs then north and 3 Mipits & 3 Skylark went south. A Black Redstart appeared in the compound mid-morning is the first of it's kind for a while. Looking out to sea not really possible in these light conditions precluded any meaningful observations in that department.
