17th Dec

Seawatching this morning in misty conditions produced 40 Brent Geese, a flock of 110 Wigeon and a group of three Long-tailed Ducks moving up-channel whilst two Great Skuas moved down-channel and three first-winter Caspian Gulls spent the afternoon around the Point.
A check of the trapping area and Long Pits produced a Woodcock and four Chiffchaffs of note and a Snipe was also flushed from the beach.
