10th February 2017

A quiet few days locally, with very little new activity but for a trickle of wildfowl over the sea (including e.g. the odd Goldeneye and Goosander). Long-stayers include the Black Redstart around the Brigg / Carr Naze, the Red-necked Grebe in the bay corner, an intermittern Great Northern Diver there and up to 50 Purple Sandpipers in the Brigg area. Four Chiffchaffs are at the Dams, where  there are also two Shelduck, two Shoveler and seven Tufted Ducks.
