A skein of 96 grey geese heading north miles out were presumably pinkies or white-fronts heading for the Alde-ore complex but were nearer the Dutch coast than Suffolk ! Not a lot moving offshore but sightings included 19 Shelduck, 13 Brent, 11 Wigeon, 9 Teal, 2 Goldeneye, a Merg & a Guilly south with 22 Brent, 4 Pochard, 3 Eider & a Common Scoter north plus a handful of Cormorants & Red-throats coming & going. A handful of new Blackies in the bushes plus single Fieldfare, Redwing & Brambling. On the move 16 Goldies south with 2 Redpolls & a Siskin paying us a brief visit. Finally 30 Starlings came in off the sea at 1115hrs presumably having set off at first light from the other side.
