A Confiding Grebe.
A Black Necked Grebe arrived on the Lagoon a couple of weeks ago and is still accompanying Little Grebes and Mallards at the far end of the lake near the board walk. It certainly seems a lot more tolerant of people than I'd expect.
Apart from this, a couple of Wheatears were still on the beach and numbers of Wigeon have increased during the windy weather of the past weekend. 7 Brent Geese flew west past the harbour entrance but I could not actually see any on the mudflats. Grey Plovers were much in evidence (some still in summer plumage) but apart from several parties of Dunlin, Ringed Plover and Curlew not too many other waders were about.
3 Swallows flew west.
