Wednesday 28th December 2016

A day of two halves, with a bright frosty start and a cold foggy finish. The reserve was relatively quiet with most bird activity centred around the grazing marsh and Broadwater, with the now seemingly resident large flock of Wigeon and Teal mobile and vocal most of the day. A short sea-watch produced three Red-breasted Mergansers, a pair of Long-tailed Ducks and a Red-throated Diver.
