27th October 2018

Weather: NNE force 5, cold wind

A group from the Leigh Ornithological Society today braved the very cold conditions to visit the island.
Surprise of the day was a Common Buzzard that appeared between the islands. The high tide roost held 3,300 Oystercatchers.
 Others waders today were 30 Dunlin, 15 Turnstone, 10 Ringed Plovers and 3 Grey Plovers.

The only small 'migrant' was a Skylark. Forty one Brent were seen, while 3 Mallard were a little unexpected. Two Rock Pipits were about.
