The very early upchannel movement of Brent Geese gathered strength today with at least 840 birds passing through. Other birds seen offshore included three Velvet Scoters and a Black-throated Diver whilst a first-winter Caspian Gull was on the beach.
Two Chiffchaffs, five Goldcrests and a Siskin were of note in the bushes and three Gadwall were on the Long Pits again.
