Fabulous weather and visibility for our first Public Walk of 2020 this morning. Twenty -six folk came along, and enjoyed a walk to the sea with a rising tide. (30+ surfers to entertain us)

Highlights were:- Marsh Harrier, being pursued by two Short-eared Owls, three very bright Greenfinch, Purple Sandpiper, lots of Curlew and a shag on the rocks at Sker, whilst folk with ‘scopes found us Red -Throated Divers, Great Crested Grebe and Common Scoter out to sea. We had a total of 49!  A really good start for our 2020 total.     If folk who went to the pool as well could give us any extras, that would be great.
