Wednesday 17th December 2014

Avocet flying south is today's highlight - when you consider that this species is highly sociable in winter congregating in often large flocks it is difficult to know what possess's one individual to migrate on it's own at this time of the year. Apart from this deadly quiet with 351 Cormorants heading out early on and south bound 3 Common Scoter, 3 Shelduck & Red-throated Diver. On the reserve single Rock Pipit & Meadow Pipit but apart from that it's down to a few "garden" type birds that live or come here for the winter.
