December 12th 2009

Excellent day weather wise and my group enjoyed getting to grips with the 2 female Common Scoter and the Great-northern Diver from rainbow corner this morning despite being mobile. Earlier when I arrived via the Half Way Lane entrance there were 7 Lesser Redpolls in toft shallows, Yellow-legged Gull adult flying around toft bay but I couldn’t locate the Green-winged Teal.
Other sightings on the group walk towards the inlet were 3 male and one female Goosander and a Grey Wagtail on the outlet.
After lunch I joined Steve Valentine on another search for the teal in toft bay but they were jittery and well spread out so came up zilch again, adult Caspian Gull in the pre-roost and one Buzzard over toft bank.
