At Climping beach this morning 2.5 hrs in a cold SSE wind, which felt like early spring as flocks of Brent Geese were on the move. A total of ca 300+ (and strangely, most of the flocks had a Cormorant or two tagged on). Two drake Eider E were nice, plus small numbers of Red-throated Divers.

Seawatch form climping beach early afternoon  produced, 2 Red-throared Diver on the sea close inshore, 25 Great-crested Grebe, 3 Common Scoter, 20 Red-breasted Mergansers, 5 Razorbill, 3 Mediterranean Gull, and several distant Gannet, also 5 Grey Partridge, 6 Curlew, and 60 Fieldfare in the setaside.
