Friday 16th December
Not much excitement on the patch today, just messing about taking a few photos. Had a look for the snow bunting reported on Birdguides yesterday, but the only birds of interset on the beach were 2 Reed Buntings. Lots of flood water around and a flock of 26+ Curlew. No sign of any wigeon feeding on the scrapes, in fact conspicuous by their absence. A lone Dunlin and 4+ Redshank on the Otter and 40+ Teal.
North of White Bridge were 40+ Wigeon and a drake Shoveler, a lone Lapwing, Little Egret, Grey Wagtail and female Bullfinch.
