Started out at Atherington at 0930 checking the flocks of Sylark that were in  the fields and must have had a least more than 1000 in the patch. Continued to see and hear 20 Woodlark, great views obtained but seen in some strange locations, seeing them on the beach in snow did not look right. Scanning the feilds from bread lane picked up 10 Bewick Swan 4 adult 6 Juvenile at the bottom of long wood.. Continued strolling around and got a call from Owen about a Great White Egret, flying east picked it up at climping car park.
