Holme Bird Observatory Tuesday 12th February 2019

A look at the sea mid-morning produced a single drake Long-tailed Duck, four Eider, twelve Red-breasted Merganser and two Goldeneye. The Twite were again present in Thornham Harbour with a count of thirteen birds made. Water Levels are returning to normal again at nearby Redwell Marsh, with several hundred Teal and Wigeon noted on there during the course of the day.
