27th September 2012

The wind is back in the west but it is still light and 4 Chiffchaffs and 3 Goldcrests made it to the island this morning but only a single Swallow was present. Large counts from the shore were 195 Shelduck ( 182 of them at Little Eye), 330 Curlew, and 388 Cormorants with 3 Whimbrel and a new high of 60 Brent Geese. Two Wigeon was a typical autumn sighting and 300 Knot still flew around the islands. Just the odd sea bird seen:- 1 Gannet, 1 Red-throated Diver, 4 Scoter and 2 Great Crested Grebes.
