Black-necked Grebe, Broadsands 8 Nov 12 ML

I have started putting the RSPB seed down for the Cirl Buntings in the 2nd car park at Broadsands (there are more 'wintering' beach huts than normal but it may restrict dog interference to the feeding area). To date I have counted 6 Cirl Buntings (2 males and 4 females) also 1 Brambling with the Chaffinches there. Just 1 Chiffchaff around the marsh at present and 5 Siskin with the Goldfinches.
