Seasalter Seafront

16th. Feb.

I just did a bird count along the seafront at Seasalter but not venturing onto the LNR and found 45 species including 2 little grebes, a year tick. Buzzards seem to be a daily record now with two seen on most visits plus a pair of marsh harriers in the area. The high tide roost still held good numbers of dunlin, ringed plovers and turnstones although numbers appear to be fluctuating day to day, maybe birds moving through? On the plots 3 stonechats, 8 gadwall, at least one shoveler plus c.100 teal, 11 snipe, 6 reed buntings, mipits, green wpecker, goldfinch, s.thrush etc..
