Thanks to Phil after I had been to Seaton marshes hide I decided to have a quick look for his redpolls and am glad I did.  I struck it lucky immediately for this one appeared reasonably close having just had a bath.  I only saw the one but no doubt the other was there somewhere too.

The water in front of Seaton Marshes hide did not drop that much at low tide today so not much showing apart from the usual redshanks,  common sandpiper and kingfisher.  The grey wagtail was still there and also a nice pair of stonechats.

The following photos were taken in the last 2 days.
Fieldfares,redwings and more golden plovers!

Thrushes and golden plovers

Over the last week there have been huge numbers of thrushes in all the fields plus large numbers of golden plovers
