Ongoing Excavation Works.

12th Dec

A nice but still very cold morning resulted in a bit of movement offshore with five Pintail, 74 Wigeon, 32 Shoveler, 139 Teal, a Black-throated Diver, 245 Red-throated Divers and two Avocets of note.
The two Dartford Warblers were seen again around the New Lighthouse (with three Stonechats) and two Woodcock were flushed from bushes at the Long Pits. Three Bullfinches were in the trapping area.
