Sunday 25th December 2016


Cormorant record smashed again this morning with 3,020 heading out to go fishing. Large numbers of big birds moving on mass is one of the spectacles of ornithology. In recent days the vanguard arrives just after 0745 and it is done & dusted in under ten minutes although the exact timing is a bit weather dependant and with increasing day-length hours it will get earlier in the morning over time. Windy morning with a brief sea watch producing southbound 26 Kitts, 7 Brent & 6 Red-throated Divers plus northbound a single Red-throat.
