Silver skies

Northeasterly and overcast, cold yet dry. Yesterday many Larus gulls were heading north over the town, perhaps changing their roost strategy in order to escape the wind chill.

Today the sea was quiet and cold except an occasional party of Brent Geese which totalled 73 E, also a distant ‘box-shaped’ flock of dabbling duck east, perhaps 40 or more Teal, 1 Common Gull and three Great Black-backs and a few only of Gannets, Common Scoters, Red-throated Divers and Great Crested Grebes.

Redwings continue at Hollies, feeding avidly at the Cemetery during yesterday’s cold wind. Up to a dozen Redwing were flitting in and out of a Silver Holly in St Leonards Gensing Gardens today.
