A dire visit to the pond saved only by Sanderling
flushed by walkers along with 3 Dunlin. No sign of the Common Scoter and the Black-necked
Grebe was fighting a losing battle with the 7 fishing boats encroaching towards
the barrier becoming flighty though still in toft when I left. Very few passerines
showing probably due to the drop in temperature finding only 2 Chiffchaff
and a Whitethroat. Other sightings included adult Yellow-legged Gull, Buzzard,
Grey Wagtail, 6 Yellow Wagtail, 200+ House Martin and 3 Raven.
