Saturday 3rd December 2016

A Great White Egret flying north offshore at 0833hrs was the fifth site record of this species that was a national rarity up until a few years ago but is now occurring in ever increasing numbers. The first winter Glaucous Gull also showed up again offshore just before mid-day. A few birds were noted going past before and after the litter pick including south bound 14 Common Scoter, 11 Brent, 3 Red-throated Diver, 2 Shelduck & Goldeneye plus northbound 2 Red-throated Diver, Gannet & Kittiwake. Rock Pipit was the only sighting of note on the reserve.
