1st Dec

A quiet day on the Point with no seawatching birds of note. A Grey Wagtail was seen by the seawatch hide.

In the trapping area there was a small movement of Stock Dove with 45 passing overhead. Also singles of Woodcock and Chiffchaff.

On the RSPB Reserve the drake Ring-necked Duck reappeared and two Smew were still on Burrowes Pit. A Brambling was seen at the feeders by the toilet block which made for a nice surprise. Lastly, a Dartford Warbler was seen  at Galloways.
