A grim day, but another good find in the Swineham area with a Red-throated Diver on the River Frome along the Two-Rivers walk. Why it didn’t settle on the gravel pits is a bit of a mystery, but instead opted for the fast flowing water of the river but it stayed in the general area all day between Redcliff and Ridge Wharf boat yard. One of the female Ring-necked Ducks was still on the main pit at Swineham and at Holes Bay the Spotted Redshank was showing well in the mouth of the PCW Drain as was the Common Sandpiper. It’s good to see a Spotted Redshank back in this area as it used to be THE winter spot to see them during low tides, but they haven’t been seen there for a few years now, so its good that one is back! There were 6 Spoonbill in Middlebere and a Merlin off Swineham Point. Several Kingfisher continue to be seen along the Holes Bay shoreline at close range.
