Friday 3rd January 2020

Wet miserable morning greatly enlivened by a gaggle of 31 Bean Geese heading south and out to sea. Never managed a Bean Goose photo on the blog before & considering the conditions lucky to manage anything at all but being birders taking a photo is only an afterthought in proceedings once the geese were identified. Apart from this sighting rain & poor vis resulted in few records with southbound 7 Brent, 5 Common Gull, Oyk & Red-breasted Merganser with northbound 8 Brent, Fulmar & Oyk. We don't get many mid-winter Fulmar sightings, with some years none at all.
