3rd November 2010

A more prolonged visit today produced a good list of species typical for November. Sea-watching provided 3 Red-throated Divers, 8 Great Crested Grebes, 2 Gannets, 5 Razorbills and a flock of 10 Eider flew southwest.

Good counts today included 630 Cormorant, 310 Shelduck, 400 Curlew and 208 Turnstone. Other waders included 4 Purple Sandpipers and other wildfowl included a slight increase in Pale-bellied Brents to 59 birds present.

Passerines were expectedly thin on the ground with single Goldcrest, Rock Pipit and Goldfinch present. Other interest was provided by the first 'prolonged' view of the resident Rabbit, but will it give itself up for the Obs photographers?
