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.
