Very Windy Day
On Wednesday 12th February having TOIL from work, I decided to go North Warren, unfortunately there wasn't any sign of any White- fronts let along Greenlands. The 50 Barnacles and 40 Greylags behind them were very distant in the extreme north west corner of North Warren. Scanning through the flock with great difficulty due to the wind and half the flock being obscured by bushes, I couldn't even see the Lesser Canada either. Subsequent trips to Oulton Broad, Asda, Lake Lothing railway Bridge failed to reveal any Shag and at Ness Point , no Purple Sands either but a flock of 7 Turnstone flew past together with a white Sanderling. Sadly, very poor birding day today.
