16th November 2023

A relatively overcast day, with light easterly winds and a top temperature of nine degrees C. After an absence, the first-winter male Red-headed Bunting re-appeared at North Marsh having advanced its moult which was presumably responsible for its recent low profile. Four Woodcocks were also on the outer head, while Little Grebes were at North Marsh and Buckton Pond.

A Velvet Scoter, four Goldeneye, a Red-breasted Merganser and 16 Little Gulls were recorded on the morning seawatch.
