Another EBR

The wind had dropped, but so had the temperature and today's seawatch felt very wintery. The first two Little Auk of the winter went north early on and there was a constant arrival of winter visitors coming 'in-off', including 2 Waxwing and 5 Woodcock. A pretty big duck movement was taking place, along with a few Brent and a flock of 19 Whooper Swan. Full results here.

From here I popped down to Hartlepool to see the Eastern Black Redstart. I wasn't expecting to see another so soon. A fly-over Woodcock was the only other bird of note.
