Not much, so far

Another overnight frost. Cold breeze but sunshine for most of the day.

This is the history of the third colour ringed Oystercatcher seen by Richard yesterday

I didn't manage to get out till the evening, just as I got on to the skear (this is the traditional spelling), the wind freshened and the clouds rolled in, it went very cold and looked like it was going to pour down, fortunately, I got away with it, but Lancaster didn't look so lucky.
Downpour towards Lancaster, as seen from the skear 18:00

Eider c60
Great Crested grebe 2
Red-breasted Merganser 1. This tatty, even by Merganser standards, male had me fooled for a minute!

Little Egret 6
Turnstone at least 150. The tide was just starting to come in as I was leaving, the Turnstone were waiting patiently on their selected piece of honeycomb, for the tide to bring the worms into feeding range.
Won't be long for this one to wait, by this time the sun was out again, but it was still cold,
 so I was on my way home for an OXO (other stock cubes are available. MD)

Possibly more records to come.
