25th Nov

A cold north-easterly blow made the seawatch uncomfortable and not particularly rewarding with 22 Brent Goose, six Shelduck, 21 Wigeon and 31 Common Scoter the most notable.

On the RSPB Reserve there were six Bewick Swans (2 on Dengemarsh/4 on ARC Pit), two Caspian Gulls were in the roost on Burrowes Pit. The drake Ring-necked Duck, Cattle Egret and two Great White Egret were still around the access track area. Finally the Long-eared Owl was still roosting behind the dipping pond.
