Tuesday 26th January 2016

As predicted a very windy day, which meant little of note on the reserve other than a female Stonechat which could be found sheltering in the lee of the wind behind the observatory. On the sea a single Goldeneye and six Red-breasted Mergansers were noted. Large numbers of geese were again present on the grazing marsh, with around 1500 Pink-feet and 300 Brent Geese present.
