Friday 12th February 2016

Red-necked Grebe flying south at 1020hrs was not expected as next to nothing offshore and not many of their kind in the East Anglia this winter. Also noted southbound 38 Black-headed Gull, 7 Red-throated Diver, 4 Shelduck, 3 Brent, 2 Wigeon & Goldeneye plus northbound 6 Brent with a solitary Guillemot noted offshore. Gull numbers declining with the bulk of the Common Gulls & Kittiwakes having departed to nearer their breeding grounds. 10 Pied Wagtail is the best count of the year so far.
