A Fine Start.

Managed to get down to the site this morning 1115hrs.
The Snipe were flying about the Pool and I managed to see them but not get a photograph. A lone Heron was observed in flight crossing the Pool.
A Common Gull was airborne with the other Gulls( thanks for pointing it out D Julian) and I did manage to take a long range shot of it in flight...not very good.
Saw the seven G.C.Grebes in the low-tide surf but did not see any Divers.
St Andrews Pool was more productive with sightings of :- Tufted Duck (1), Siskin, Wren,Teal (1), Little Egret, G.S.Woodpecker, Song Thrush, Redwing, March Tit, Chiffchaff, Grey and Pied Wagtail plus the usual water birds and Tits.
A Water Rail was heard but not seen .
A nice start to the New Year.
