10th November 2010

A moderate north-easterly today brought a couple of observers to the island, but sadly no sign of yesterday's Red-necked Grebe but 43 Great Cresteds were counted.

Wildfowl was the main focus today with 97 Pale-bellied Brents still present (including the returning colour-ringed bird from yesterday), 4 Wigeon, 11 Pintail, 4 Eider, 3 Scaup, single Teal and 2 Goldeneye.

There were very few passerines although a couple of Rock Pipits remain but 15 Skylark and an excellent movement of 667 Starlings (including one flock of 550) passed over.

An adult Mediterranean Gull was seen from the North End over the tide and the Rabbit made another brief appearance!
