All quiet on the eastern front

Fairly quiet of late at the east end of the estuary, the winter return of Shelduck, Red-breasted Merganser and a small flock of Ringed Plover to the Salty have been my most notable sightings, aside from a Great-spotted Woodpecker in Bitton Park (garden tick!).

This afternoon a look offshore from the Yacht Club showed a very flat sea and not a lot else, but perseverance was eventually rewarded with two Great Northern and a Red-throated Diver amongst the Cormorant and Shag.


  1. Just noticed this blog via your comment on Matt's new blog. Duly bookmarked.

    1. Thanks Andrew - seems like everyone's getting blogs now!

  2. Kev - are the warren Scoters showing much sign of movement? Need some to come south!
