Friday 4th November 2016

A quieter day with light rain and a westerly breeze. The highlight was up to 120 Waxwings in the area between Redwell hide and Beach Road. At the Obs a Lesser Whitethroat was still along the east bank, and on the sea a Long-tailed Duck and a Slavonian Grebe were of note, with 2 Stonechats still around the Broadwater.
