Unseasonal Brent Goose

I watched Passage House over the falling tide this morning and again on the rising tide late afternoon/ early evening. The most unexpected sighting was a Dark-bellied Brent Goose that flew in from the lower estuary at around 9am and was still present off Wear Farm at 5.30pm. Two Little Ringed Plovers were again on the spit off Passage House but the only other waders were four Oystercatchers and two Curlew. Breeding success was confirmed for Shelduck, Mallard and Moorhen.
