Broadsands: 08:30 - 12:15, 11.12.16

From Churston Pt, c. 08:45 - 09:30: 1 Eider (mussel beds); 3 Black-necked Grebes; 1 Slav Grebe (off the Point); 8 Velvet Scoter + 11 Brent Geese (all together off Saltern Cove); 1 more Brent Goose (in Broadsands Bay).

Around Broadsands Car Park c. 09:45 - 12:00: the Siberian Chiffchaff was in the marshy area adjacent to car park c. 10:00 - 10:30. At c.11:00 it came in over my head and landed in front of me, in the hedge, behind the beach huts, back of the 2nd car park, where the Cirl Buntings usually are. There it remaIned, calling and feeding until I left it at c.12:00.

At least 4 Cirls (2m, 2f) and 1 Reed Bunting, same spot.
