11 People attended the above meeting on a bright but windy and cold day. After walking down to the little bridge where a Gadwall and Goldcrest were seen amongst other birds we continued down towards Shalfleet Quay. In one of the fields not far from the car park many winter thrushes were sighted, mostly Redwing but with a few Fieldfare amongst them. The most notable birds were 100+ Wigeon, 50+ Lapwing, 30+ Black-tailed Godwit and a Great Crested Grebe. 44 different species were seen or heard. The meeting finished a little early as everyone was getting cold.
