27 January 2013. Shoreham area. Another visit to Widewater clocked up my 10th? failure to see Velvet Scoter although 15 Red-breasted Mergansers and 2 Red-throated Divers were nice. 3 Purple Sandpipers were seen at Shoreham Harbour where a Buzzard coasted east. Little was on the Adur (few gulls around generally) while a Brambling was picked out of the reduced finch flock at Cuckoo Corner where 2 Green Woodpeckers, 3 Jays and 20 Reed Buntings were also seen.
