With a slight change in the wind direction it began to feel slightly warmer for a few days, however the weather forecast for next week apparently sees the return of sub-zero temperatures and snow!

Waterfowl numbers seem to be dropping of as Wigeon numbers around the harbour have started to see a dip, most noticeably in Holes Bay. Also in Holes Bay,  near the PC World outflow Common Sandpiper, Kingfisher, Firecrest and Grey Wagtail and a Siberian Chiffchaff was further up the channel. Today Lytchett Bay saw 2 Green Sandpiper, 1 Brambling, 2 Gadwall, 200 Lapwing, 150 Dunlin and a Sparrowhawk. Out in the harbour Red-breasted Merganser, Goldeneye and Great Crested Grebe are still fairly prolific although numbers do seem to have dropped in the last week. A late update from last week, a dead Bittern was found at Swineham GP, cause of death unknown. Finally two Waxwing were showing well in the car park of the Acorn Pub / Co-Op in Creekmoor today around 15:45pm
