6th November 2019

Weather:  SE force 1, intermittent rain and drizzle.
Following some light rain overnight, a short visit found that there were no migrants present apart from a single Goldcrest and the only passer- by was a Skylark. Three Meadow Pipits were around but no Rock Pipits showed this morning. Three Teal floated off the east side as the tide ebbed and a short time later 2 Harbour Porpoises surfaced off to the north. The Brent were highly scattered but the 2 new ringed birds found on the 31st October were identified. As many as 1,500 Common Scoter were within telescope view towards the wind farm while others on the sea were 12 Great Crested Grebes and 4 Red-throated Divers, one very near to the island. Two Grey Plovers and a Purple Sandpiper were the best of the low tide waders, while 6 Little Egrets fed and the Magpie still flies about.
