Snowy Morning.

Arrived at the part frozen pool at 1100hrs and was greeted by the usual residents plus the Tufted Ducks. Took one or two record snow shots and went up to the Western car park.
The G.C.Grebe ..eight today...were some way out towards Gribben and I did not locate anything else on the sea bar the usual Gulls and a lone Oystercatcher.
Around the shoreline and the *sandwich bowl* I managed three patch year ticks that have alluded me so far.Rock Pipit, Ringed Plover and Turnstones.
At St Andrews I managed a few reasonable snowy bird photographs, but again, it was residents only for me during my short visit... which was conducted through the confines of the car.
