Tuesday 3rd January 2017

The Ferruginous Duck remained on the Broadwater throughout the day, though as yesterday, elusive at times. The juvenile Glaucous Gull was seen off Gore Point and presumably the same bird later in the day at Thornham Harbour along with the Twite flock. On the sea there were three Long-tailed Ducks and three Velvet Scoters whilst a pair of very confiding Bearded Tits were in the reeds along the eastern edge of the Broadwater.
