The cold north-easterlies finally weakened and a hint of south-easterly crept in by the afternoon, with new arrivals including a Wheatear, a Yellow and two Grey Wagtsils at East Lea, two Wheatears on Carr Naze, 20 Swallows and 10 Sand Martins at the Dams, and a scattering of commoner warblers in the hedges and woodland.

Yesterday (15th), the Great Egret retuened to the Dams, while on the sea, 10 Common Scoters and three Red-throated Divers went south.
