Happy New Years Eve

So had chores to do before nipping out to Breydon Water with the dogs, it was cold and wet but dogs needed walking. Amazing mass of birds on the estuary, maybe 1500 Wigeon, 2000 Lapwing with mixed Teal, Black tailed Godwit, Dunlin, Ringed Plover, Grey Plover Redshank and 400 Golden Plover, Loads of mixed gulls 5 Med Gulls.. It was windy and the birds were distant so I didn't check them very thoroughly.
Half way down the bank I heard Snow Bunting, then 3 flew up from the edge of the marsh, also a Rock pipit.

On the way home stopped at Gorleston and had a quick check of the Scoter flock, 5 Velvet Scoters still. Finished with 3 Med Gull In the car park.
Great finish to 2013....

Happy New Year Everyone.
