Church Norton: The three Spoonbills were back doing what they do best - snoozing on Tern Island - and there were also 12 Bar-tailed Godwits roosting nearby. Just one Slavonian Grebe and one Great Crested Grebe were offshore, whilst in the harbour there were four Red-breasted Mergansers, the Peregrine buzzed over and there were plenty of the commoner waders and wildfowl, including a decent flock of Knot and the wintering Whimbrel (AH/BFF/DM/OM).
Medmerry: Over the middle of Medmerry today at 1230hrs, a flock (!) of ca.105 Snipe, high up and looking for somewhere to roost I presume. Southern Pochard still on Ham ponds, 2 Kestrels and 1 Stonechat at Ham viewpoint, and a flock of ca.45 Stock Doves on nearby stubble. Six Yellowhammers near Easton farm. Female Eider still in channel near breach (PH).
