Today at Boulmer started of wet but got brighter this evening.
Loads of birds around at the minute. Waders on the beach are the highlight with the winters first Purple Sandpiper ( remember the Grey Plover too), 6+ Sanderling, 65 Dunlin, 60 Ringed Plover, 50+ Turnstone, 5 Knot, 20 Redshank. 300 Black headed Gulls were also feeding on the tideline. At Seaton Point flocks of finches were noticeable with Goldfinch, Linnet and Greenfinch in similar numbers, 20 or 30 each?
The waders will get a better scrutiny at the weekend.
