15th October 2008

A northwesterly force 5/6 prompted a sea-watch which produced 5 Red-throated Divers, 5 Guillemots, 3 Razorbills and 14 Common Scoter. A Merlin came in from the north, joining one already seen flying south from middle and the bird that has been around for the last few days. Sixteen Goldcrests were a surprise with this wind direction, and also grounded was a Song Thrush and the first Redwing of the autumn. Wintering Oystercatchers have built up to 6,000 and the Pale-bellied Brents to 16 birds.
