Report from Roger Lane. (26th-27th Dec 2009)

"I visited Par each day over the Xmas weekend i.e. 26th, 27th , but little changes! Species thought to be present all weekend on PBP were: 2+, Tufted Duck; 1 x Gadwall; 2+, Snipe and probably Comm.Gulls most days.
On Par Beach were the ubiqitous Oystercatchers; 10+; Turnstones; 5+, G.Ringed Plover and 5+, Dunlin. On the 26th only, there was a fly-past of c.20 Curlews, too early for their roost they flew on to the Gribben fields.
In Par Bay were no more than 6 of the original 9 GCGrebes, indeed have not seen more than 7 for weeks (2 moved on?) and 1+, GNDiver.
The 'best' afternoon was today on the Gribben road and looking west (from SX096524) across farm-land to Penhale Farm S. (Ref: SX105525), where there were 50+, Redwings; 20+, Fieldfares and 30+, Lapwings. Happy New Year !"

Thanks for the report Roger.
Happy New Year to you and all readers.
