Saturday 17th December 2016

A foggy day with very poor visibility for most of the time, a few highlights included a Long-tailed Duck close offshore, 4 Red-throated Divers, a Slavonian Grebe offshore from the NWT, over 1100 Teal on the grazing marshes and a Chiffchaff trapped and ringed at the Observatory. 32 Twite were at Thornham Harbour. A Short-eared Owl was hunting on the NWT reserve in the afternoon.
