Bitterly cold today with the wind coming in across the sea, plenty of food had been left on the ground and on arrival around a dozen plus mixed species lifted into the hedge margins.

Slow to return, first back were a pair of Robins, then a female Cirl Bunting followed by a second hen and then a male.

Nice showing of a male Reed Bunting.

On the sea looking out from the sea wall "nothing" apart from a solitary gull in the shallows to be seen.

Walking back to the car a hen Sparrowhawk came in over the marsh scattering woodpigeon in her path.
