23rd October 2014

Weather : S force 1
A fairly brief visit was quite fruitful with a male Stonechat recorded on the island, also a Merlin was seen flying north. Twenty one Carrion Crows and a Rock Pipit were on Little Eye, with another Rock Pipit at the north end, while wader counts on the flood tide included 54 Grey Plovers and 500 Knot both flying north, 190 Curlew, 150 Dunlin and 76 Redshank. The only small migrants were 5 Skylarks and a Pied Wagtail.
