1st October 2014

Weather: WSW force 2, veering WNW force 3
With the wind in the west this morning, no Goldcrests were to be found, although a Chiffchaff was present that could have been from a previous day. The regular Linnet flock was at an all time high of 70 birds, how many of these are birds that have previously bred on the island is an open question. There were good numbers of Bar-tailed Godwits today (15) and Little Egrets (6), while 5,000 Oystercatchers were on Salisbury bank. A Common Seal was noted, also our friend the rabbit who we haven't mentioned for a while.
