New Years Day

Not an early start for me today, didn't get to the patch until 9:30, luckily dave's two Brent Geese were still lingering in the bay and was a great bird to start the year off as was an adult Caspian Gull both birds avoiding me last year.

Good numbers of Black-tailed godwits seen along side both Dunlin and Redshank with tricky birds like Grey Wagtail and Water Rail also making a show.

The regular Peregrine and a decent flock of Fieldfare noted with a single Redwing.

A total of 51 Species was not a bad tally for a three hour visit.

This young male Peregrine was unfortunately on the end of a falconers arm!
