Nothing dramatic to report...the terrible weather early in the week made birding difficult and then yesterday it all changed sky, little wind and therefore a wander along the North Wall was called for....
20 Fieldfares and a single Redwing in Owl Copse plus a few Reed Buntings, Greenfinches and a Yellowhammer. 3 Rock Pipits along the wall, big flocks of Brent Geese alighted on Breach Pool much to the delight of a visiting birdwatching group

Several flocks of Curlew arrived and quickly joined others feeding in the fields in front of Halsey farm..

Another decent day today with flocks of waders throughout the harbour...this one of Knot in front of the Church Norton hide being just one example.

 The Lagoon held the usual ducks including the splendid drake Goldeneye

Two Water Rail in the reedbed walkway area but, as ever. unseen!
