The first occasional update from Southwold, showing pics and info on birds.
Yesterday, I refound the Lesser Yellowlegs, which overwintered and I last saw in Feb, showing well on the town marsh south of the water tower. The fields are flooded, there are also three Ruff, five Water Pipits (last winter over 20 were seen), and over 150 Snipe (last winter over 500), so things are looking good.
Over the sea today, Red-throated Divers were undertaking local feeding movements, with 300+ south in an hour before 1200hrs, plus many auks (all close enough to ID were Guillemots).
Gulls at the harbour mouth were lower in number than yesterday, but on the north town marsh a 1-w mich was showing well (attached is one from Nov), plus five Med Gulls.
