A very cold morning with a hard frost. A walk from the beach through Slipe Field to the north Wall produced large numbers of Linnets, Reed Buntings and Yellowhammers. Duck numbers were considerable with Wigeon and Teal predominating but Pintail and Goldeneye also present.
Best of all however were 4 Whooper Swans flying in over the fields ( presumably from Ivy Lake wher they were seen earlier) and landing in the harbour.
