A party of seven Bewick's Swans arriving from the east was the highlight of the day. The sea produced the now regular good numbers of Red-throated Divers and Guillemots and one of the usual first-winter Caspian Gulls was back at the Fish Hut. A Chiffchaff was seen at the Long Pits.
It was an excellent day around the general area. The Stejneger's Stonechat was still showing at the western side of Kerton Road Pit along with a Dartford Warbler. The Ring-necked Duck continues to show very well on the RSPB Reserve and a Slavonian Grebe was seen on New Diggings. Large numbers of geese were present at Scotney and included a Pink-footed, three Tundra Beans and 16 White-fronts. A Black-necked Grebe was also present here.
