18th September 2015

Weather: S force 1 with showers, in the afternoon N force 2
Highlight today was a Goosander flying west, while a few birds were present this morning which included 2 Goldcrests, 6 Robins, 5 Wheatears, 5 Grey wagtails, with a male kestrel and an immature Peregrine. Ten Bar-tailed Godwits, 52 Ringed Plover were among good shore counts, and with most terns now having departed south a single Little Tern was a good find amongst the dozen or so terns logged today. Five Guillemots and 5 Great Crested Grebes were the best of the other sea birds.
