27th September 2017

Weather: S 2, backing SE 4/5, mist clearing later

It felt promising first thing and observers were once again greeted by the sound of Goldcrests and Chiffchaffs.

However, the wind quickly picked up and became blustery so most birds were keeping low.

A couple of Wheatears were keeping themselves safe above the cliffs and a couple of Peregrines, including an immature which once again landed on the mast, attacked and captured a solitary Knot. 

Small groups of duck including Wigeon (13) and Teal (2) were noted during the morning and the two Pale-bellied Brent Geese were still present.

A single Reed Bunting passed over but there were very few Meadow Pipits passing over today.

Late morning the Firecrest from yesterday was refound in the Obs garden and gave brief views in the blustery conditions (photos from yesterday).
