2nd Dec

A cold, bright morning brought an easterly movement of Red-throated Diver with 433 birds in two hours along with two Velvet Scoters. Huge numbers of gulls were feeding at the Patch and included three first-winter Caspian Gulls and a Yellow-legged Gull.
The land also produced a few bits and pieces with a Jack Snipe, two Snipe, a Woodcock, two Merlins and a Firecrest of note. A Little Grebe was also seen on the southern Long Pit.
