A very quiet day with no other birders and not many birds. The cold grey wind probably contributed.
There were around 10 Redwing feeding around the edge of Warren Farm House Field. It was particularly quiet from Mary Monts in fact there wasn’t a single bird on the sea during 45 minutes of scanning.
Over on Venner the 13 Spoonbill were resting on the other side of the island.
On Black Water there were good numbers of ducks with new highs for me of 82 Gadwall and 29 Tufted Duck.
On De L’Orne Scrape there were 4 Black-tailed Godwit and a Greenshank and plenty of Shelduck, Shoveler, Teal and Wigeon.
On the walk over to the hides it was good to hear several Skylark singing.
Another brief sea watch from the Sailing Club produced a female Eider and the highlight of the day was the Pale-bellied Brent Goose feeding on the near edge of Gull Island.
