17th December 2012

A sea watch over the tide braved the rain and was rewarded with a Slavonian grebe on the sea, a special record of this rare small grebe; also noted were an adult Kittiwake, a Shag (quite scarce this year), 4 Red-throated Divers,2 Red-breasted Merganers and 20 Common Scoters and the female Scaup. On the island were 2 Rock Pipits and a Redwing passed through early. An interesting sighting today was of a Peregrine trying to catch a Little Egret in flight over the east Hoyle, the Little Egret managed to make it to the marine lake unscathed.
