6th November 2010

Winds were light and variable with rain later and therefore no more Leach's petrels but a sea watch produced 7 Red-throated Divers, 9 Guillemots, 22 Grest Crested Grebes and 135 Common Scoter.
Two Mute Swans flew south west, 23 Wigeon were noted and 5 Little Egrets were on the shore.
The Brent increased to a record 87 for so far this winter.
The most notable passerines were 28 Skylarks across the island, and in the evening 27 Redwings heard overhead.
