A day of strong westerly winds, a sunny morning followed by overcast skies and a high of 17 degrees C. Wildfowl interest included an unseasonal dark-bellied Brent Goose flying north, nine Shoveler and a lone Gadwall. Elsewhere, Thornwick Pools continued to host a Water Rail. A single Wood Sandpiper, two Greenshank and four Dunlin were also in residence.
