Wednesday 29th November 2017

A cold and breezy day with several hail showers meant limited interest around the reserve - a lone Bearded Tit was in the reeds near the Observatory,  a single Fieldfare was present and a female Blackcap was seen. Two Rock Pipits were in Thornham Harbour whilst a walk along the beach produced 5 Red-breasted Mergansers and a Goldeneye.
