10th Jan

More of the same with lots of Red-throated Divers, Kittiwakes and Guillemots offshore along with at least 2000 Cormorants and a single Great Skua.
Very quiet on the land other than two Marsh Harriers over the area and a Great Spotted Woodpecker and lots of Blue and Great Tits at the feeders.

A Grey Seal was seen offshore.

Elsewhere, the drake Smew continues to be seen on the Reserve but is elusive and nine Great White Egrets are in the area. Three Long-tailed Ducks remain at the Sussex end of Scotney.
