Gale force 9 to storm force 10. Say no more . . .
There was a small 'twitch' on today as a Little Grebe was discovered at Furse - an Island tick for many. A Great Northern Diver was also at Furse. There was a significant increase in Fieldfare numbers throughout the day with over 1000 seen! I returned to photograph the Grey Phalarope still feeding away in South Haven which had apparently been joined by the second bird again. However as I watched the pair & began photographing them it became apparent that the second bird was a 'new' bird & not the second bird from earlier in the week (which was much more colourful & less advanced into it's winter plumage).
