Gileston/East Aberthaw

2 Yellowhammer , Stonechat , Reed Buntings and a single Whitethroat at Gileston . Large flocks of Linnet , Goldfinch , House Sparrow , Jackdaw and Rooks over the fields . Buzzard , Kestrel and Raven also present . 67 Oystercatcher , 2 Turnstone and 4 Little Egret at Breaksea Point at high tide .

At East Aberthaw 2 Buzzard , 2 Kestrel and a male Sparrowhawk around the tip area . 2 Raven over flying westward . A pair of Stonechat were near the rivermouth plus a pair sat on top of a bush with 4 Whitethroat in the lagoon area . Other warblers seen were Chiffchaff and Blackcap . Sand Martin , Swallow and a group of 11 Swift were also present . 12 Ringed Plover , 5 Turnstone , Oystercatcher and a single Little Egret were on the beach . Good to see the Mute Swan pair still have 5 cygnets .

It will be interesting to see what they do with the power station once it is completely shut down which I think is in March .
