      Our morning walk (9am to 11am) along the Bare Seafront and through Happy Mount Park

      On the sea:
      3 whooper swans first seen off Jenny Browns Point then drifted past the Kent Estuary and off towards Grange.
      3 great crested grebes
      34 eider
      3 shelduck
      7 wigeon
      6 red-breasted merganser
      24 greylag geese flew over north to south

      Wader comparison numbers – 76 turnstone, 34 dunlin, 20 ringed plover, 29 redshank

      HMP had 2 nuthatches, 2 jays, 2 goldcrests
      Pre-half-term there were 60+ mallards, today 21.
