Monday 30th January 2017

With no sign of the Ferruginous Duck for three days, it does seem to have left the site, perhaps coinciding with the arrival of milder weather from the west. On the sea today 400+ Common Scoters, and 20+ Red-breasted Mergansers were of note. A Water Rail was calling by the Broadwater. Off the Golf Course 2 Lapland Buntings were seen and a Stonechat was also recorded, together with a flock of 120 Linnets.
