11th November 2014

Weather: SE force 3/4, squalls
Seals seldom haul out on the main island, however today a pale Grey seal pup was on the north end rocks with a female (parent?). Dark-bellied Brent reached a new high for the season of 6 birds, while the ring markings of 2 of the pale-bellied birds were read in the field to confirm their reappearance from previous years. Fifteen starlings went through, and 6 Pintail flew to the south west.Sixty two bar-tailed Godwits were on the north shore with 20 Grey Plover and another 21 Grey Plover were at Little Eye.
