30th November-2nd December

Much the same as in the last post with little change in the wildfowl and wader numbers seemingly wintering on the Island. Presumably the same 2 juvenile Glaucous Gulls were seen again at the south end on 1st, and the same Pink-footed Goose lingered with the Greylags throughout. Twite and Snow Buntings were recorded daily with 36 of the former and 14 of the latter the highest counts, both within sight from the observatory on 2nd. Singles of Hen Harrier and Merlin were also seen and the 2 Whooper Swans were still present.
