Plym Estuary & Saltram

The freeze elsewhere is beginning to have a positive impact on my "patch" with an influx of c180 Redwings, c45 Fieldfares, 41 Snipes and a single Jack Snipe. Also the regulars represented by - Curlews 66, Common Sandpiper 1, Red-breasted Merganser 8 (2 drakes), Greenshanks 6, Little Grebes 3, Redshanks 118, Little Egrets 13, Wigeons 3 (1 ad drake). Also first Water Rail I'm aware of here this winter (same spot as 2 years ago by flooded wood).

Not bad!
