8th December

The wind had switched to a brisk NW bringing regular, nasty showers sweeping across the island; little look around Brides and the north end produced 7 Great-northern Divers, a Heron, 3 Mute Swans, a Whooper Swan, a different adult Eurasian White-fronted Goose opposite Rue, 12 Shoveler, 6 Goldeneye (highest count since the spring), the drake Smew still at Bewan, 6 Red-breasted Mergansers, a Hen Harrier, 4 Ruff still, 29 Bar-tailed Godwits and a total of 98 Snow Buntings with several flocks roaming around.
