After the plastic nonsense yesterday, Whiteford provided some real wild geese! Not a bad day today at Whiteford with the winter visitors still showing well. A Jack Snipe was seen on the way to the hide with 10+ Snipe. The Hide, possibly the coldest anywhere in the world, is well placed to view the Burry Inlet's specialities. At least 2 (possibly 3) Slavonian Grebe, 213 Brent Goose, 9 Red-breasted Merganser and 56 Eider. Also present 5 Shoveler, 3 Common Scoter and 12 Great Crested Grebe as well as a good variety of waders. No raptors at all was unexpected.
