Knowing the Golf club would be shut I ventured out into the snow. With blizzard like conditions blowing snow into my bino's did well to see the following. 3 Stonechat, 1 Rock Pipit, on West Beach, a total of 75 Redwing, 46 Fieldfare, moving west and some lingering on the golf course, along with 7 flushed Snipe, and 6 Golden Plover heading south east, and a Water Rail calling from the reedbed. Also good numbers of Meadow Pipit feeding and many small flocks of flyover Skylarks.
