Monday 4th January 2016

A more sedate morning both bird wise & weather wise which encouraged 496 Cormorants to head out fishing. 9 Eiders on the sea early on departed to the south with other movements limited to southbound 26 Golden Plover, 23 Brent, 6 Shelduck, 2 Teal, Red-throated Diver plus 2 Red-throats & a Brent north. Chiffchaff & a Goldcrest are still with us and a Mipit heading south must still think it's autumn. Gorse is looking good at the moment.

Ringing: 2 greenfinch
