12th Dec

10:00-16:00

Sightings included Drk Goosander off 1st field, the Long tailed duck still present bang slap in the middle of Mere, no sign of the Slav in the morning but was present late aft whilst i wa freezing me nuts off picking the bones out the gull roost. 114 White fronts dropped in late morning with 1 Tundra Bean Goose in with em. The same birds then dropped in around 15:30 with the 2nd flock of White fronts (70+) off 1st field, then the lot all went south at 15:50. Spent a couple of hours north of Mere (minor roads round Catfoss, Skipsea, Bewholme) trawling round like a kerb crawler (looking for geese and gulls officer) but no luck, only some decent numbers of winter thrushes noted, a juv Pegger and Common Buzzard showed well between Atwick and Bewholme. Marsh Harrier and Kingfisher also southside of Mere.

    Also did the area north of the Mere with Roy late morning/early afternoon. Only interesting birds were single Pinkfoot and Ross’s Geese-type hybrid, likely the Tophill bird, with Greylags and Canadas at Far Grange.
